I specialize in normativity, and I like to call the bulk of what I do meta-normativity. So I tend to look at first-order inquiries in ethics, rationality, epistemology, political philosophy and philosophy of law, and gravitate toward the second-order semantic, metaphysical, epistemic, psychological and logical questions that arise.

Sometimes I stick to the first-order inquires in practical reason, philosophy of law, epistemology, and political philosophy.

Take a look at the Canadian Journal of Philosophy, where I am an editor.

For a recent conversation about ethical intuitions between myself and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong check out a video at Philosophy TV.
