My research focuses on philosophical methods. In particular, I ask questions about the place of intuitions and empirical research in philosophy.
My research also touches on issues in epistemology, ethics, free will and moral responsibility, philosophy of language, metaphysics and aesthetics.
I am also a founder member of Experimental Philosophy Group UK.
I recently wrote a bit of code that will create animations like this one based on data from JSTOR's data for research showing how word frequencies in journals change over time. You can also do something similar to track word frequency across sections of longer philosophical works such as Plato's Republic.
