Research Interests

Philosophy of language, especially theories of meaning, truth and logical form in natural language; philosophy of mind; philosophy of action, especially collective action; epistemology.

I work on foundational issues in the philosophy of language (esp. logical form and semantics), epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of action (esp. collective action). Among other projects, I am currently working on a book on collective agency titled, Collective Action: From Individual to Institutional Agency.
