My work falls in the intersection between the Philosophy of Mind and Epistemology. My focus is on the distinctive human capacity to do things for reasons. This focus has led me to work in the theory of reasoning, the theory of action, and on self-knowledge.

I also have strong interests in the history of philosophy, especially Kant and early figures in the history of analytic philosophy, such as Frege, Russell and Wittgenstein.
