Dissertation

My dissertation Defeasibility in Epistemology (2020) explored ways in which logics for defeasible reasoning can be used to further contemporary debates in epistemology. I like to think of it as an exercise in non-traditional formal epistemology and as keeping John Pollock‘s legacy alive. If you’re interested, you can take a look at a summary or read the whole thing. However, the dissertation has been superseded by a set of standalone papers, and so you might prefer to read them instead.
