He maintains his interest from his PhD research into the intersection between the Philosophy of Language and the Philosophy of Mind as well as the History of Analytic Philosophy.  He has also developed interests in many other areas related to the general teaching needs of his department, most recently in the Philosophy of Science and the Ethics of War and Peace.  Further, in teaching he aims to inculcate in students the intellectual attitude of humility about their beliefs, understanding, and judgements.
