Research interests


Daniel has published in a wide range of subjects in philosophy, including epistemology, ethics, philosophy of language, aesthetics, philosophy of mind, and the history of philosophy. One theme which runs through much of this work is normativity - very roughly, the right and the good. At present, he is the Principal Investigator on the AHRC-funded Early Career Research Project, Normativity: Epistemic and Practical. His Co-Investigators are Conor McHugh and Jonathan Way.

Daniel presently supervises PhD students working on inferential role semantics and epistemic vale. He would be pleased to hear from students seeking supervision on topics which fall within his areas of research interest.
