My research interests lay at the interstices of game & decision theory, social epistemology, and philosophy of biology.
In particular, I use the tools of game theory, dynamical systems, and network theory to explore a range of phenomena from the evolution of cognition (esp. recursive structures in language), cooperation (esp. altruism), and complexity (esp. of culture), to the logic of network formation, and the effects of cognitive biases on learning, beliefs, and group polarization.
I also have broader interests in political philosophy informed by decision and game theory (esp. A. Sen and J. Harsanyi), history of analytic philosophy (esp. B. Russell and B. de Finetti), philosophy of mathematics (esp. D. Hilbert and P. I. Bernays), empiricism (esp. D. Hume and T. Reid), and American pragmatism (esp. C. S. Peirce and W. James).
Below are abstracts of my articles on game theory, rationality, learning, and social epistemology. You can find downloadable drafts of the full articles at my academia.edu profile. Also, feel free to peruse some computational models I’ve developed as a part of this research, and information graphics I’ve produced on related topics.
