I am interested the nature of inferences from evidence to scientific theory. Thus, I am drawn to topics such as the problem of induction, the logic of confirmation, and the demarcation between science and pseudo-science. I am especially interested in how science manages to be an effective guide to truth despite lack of consensus on what a constitutes a good inductive inference. Before coming to Pitt I received my BS in mathematics from Auburn University.
