About me

Since Oct. 2014, I am a Lecturer of Philosophy at Durham University.

My primary research related to this project is in the realm of formal modeling and interactive logic. I am interested in bringing togther tools and techniques from modern logic and artificial intelligence to help explore and understand practices of reasoning and argumentation in historical contexts. My personal research is primarily focused on developments in medieval Western Europe, particularly in medieval theories of obligationes, but I am also interested in the development of logic within the epistemological and debate traditions in Buddhist India and Tibet.

I am also the Editor-in-Chief and Principal Investigator of the Dictionary of Medieval Names from European Sources, and an Associate Editor of Journal of Logic, Language, and Information.

Research interests: Medieval modal, temporal, and tense logic; Medieval theories of obligationes; Abstract dialogue and argumentation systems; Medieval European onomastics; The influence of theology on the development of medieval logic; Computational social choice; Medieval economic and trade history.
