Jeg har kompetanse i moderne vitenskapsteori. Min forskning ligger i skjæringspunktet mellom matematikkens filosofi og fysikkens filosofi. I den siste tiden har jeg fattet interesse for å undersøke den filosofiske relevansen av psykologisk forskning på matematisk kognisjon. Jeg er også interessert i den analytiske filosofiens historie og sentrale filosofer i denne historien, særlig Wittgenstein og Quine. (Flere detaljer på min personal webpage)
