Research Interests

I currently have two areas of interest. The first is legal argumentation on factual issues. Within this field, my research focuses on factual issues of a technical or scientific nature (expert evidence and experts). The second area of interest is constituted by the phenomena of epistemic injustice: cases in which a person suffers a kind of injustice as a subject of knowledge.

Key Words

Argumentation about facts ; Expert Testimony; Expertise; Epistemic Injustice.
