I completed a Masters at Monash University before starting my PhD at RSSS in April, 2008. My Masters thesis was in epistemology, focusing on deductive closure of knowledge, transmission failure of warrant, modal theories of knowledge and entitlements.

From Sensitivity to Entitlements: The Case Against Closure

Apart from epistemology, I also dabble a bit in philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. Currently I am thinking about assertion and whether / to what extent it is tied with knowledge. I'd also like to venture into formal epistemology and find a place for non-evidential entitlements in a formal framework that models rational credence.
