Applied Epistemology (Legal Epistemology, Epistemology of Evidence Law)
At present, I am mostly interested in the following questions at the intersection of epistemology and philosophy of (evidence) law:
What are the key epistemological properties of legal evidence? When is a body of evidence sufficient to convict?
What's the nature of legal standards of proof? What can count as a reasonable doubt in a court of law?
What's so special about eyewitness testimony, and what's the role of statistics in a courtroom?
How can experts contribute to a criminal trial?
How should we capture the epistemic normativity of evidential reasoning?
I am also interested in the following long-standing issues in epistemology:
What's the relationship between knowledge and luck? Need knowledge be safe or sensitive?
Can the Gettier problem be solved?
How do acquire knowledge through testimony?
I have additional interests in general philosophy of science, especially in the structure of scientific explanation, experimental epistemology (especially lay judgements about epistemic justification) and the epistemology of science communication.
