My research focuses on issues in social epistemology, philosophy of science, and philosophy of religion. Currently, most of it is in collective epistemology and political epistemology: can groups have beliefs and knowledge, are there collective intellectual virtues, how do people form and change beliefs about politics, what determines the epistemic performance of groups?
I teach on these same issues, but I also enjoy teaching general epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, and business ethics.

December 2018 – The Young Academy has awarded Rens Vliegenthart and myself a small project grant for an interdisciplinary project on truth-finding in democracy. Together with the Raad voor Openbaar Bestuur, we will organize two interdisciplinary meetings with communication scientists, political scientists, psychologists, philosophers, and policy makers and edit an accessible volume in Dutch on the project theme.
