I received my B.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Toronto and my PhD from the Philosophy Department at the University of Pittsburgh (1994).

I work mainly in philosophy of science and decision theory, with particular attention to issues surrounding probability and confirmation. My current research relates to analogical reasoning (following up on my recent book, By Parallel Reasoning: The Construction and Evaluation of Analogical Arguments, Oxford University Press, 2010), the role of symmetry in probabilistic reasoning, and Pascal's Wager.
