I research on the foundations of cognitive science; with focus on theories of concepts (mainly conceptual spaces) and theories of reasoning. Other research interests are Social Epistemology, Non-classical logics (particularly nonmonotonic and relevant logics), General Philosophy of Science (particularly conceptual change and scientific rationality), and Philosophy of Language (particularly inferentialism).
