Dr Edward Elliott


I joined the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science in January 2016 as a postdoctoral researcher, and began as a Lecturer in July of the same year. Between Febrary 2017 and January 2019, I was a Marie Curie Fellow, working on a project about degrees of belief and the philosophy of mind.

My current research focuses primarily on formal epistemology and decision theory, especially as it relates to the philosophy of mind. I also do research in the philosophy of language, especially theories of meaning and content, formal semantics, and two-dimensional semantics.
