About the research

I currently work on the development of reliable debiasing techniques in legal decision making contexts, conduct a conceptual analysis of 'fallacy' across various disciplines, and work on ways of overcoming the replication crisis in the behavioural sciences.

Past projects, on which some work is ever ongoing, have applied Peter Gärdenfors's theory of Conceptual Spaces to theory dynamical processes in the empirical science, and have addressed the reconstruction and evaluation of pro/con argumentation in practical contexts, among others.
