Interests
My primary research interests center on developing a mathematical understanding of thinking and the mind. This effort involves seeking out or developing mathematical concepts and theorems that fit the subject. My work draws on mathematical theories of logic, computation, economics, and mechanics, as well as more general branches of mathematics. In turn, this work has made novel contributions to these existing subjects, including nonmonotonic logics, preference logics, and hybrid mechanics. I am especially interested in
 Developing theories of rational reflective reasoning, deliberation, adaptation, motivation, habit, and intelligence;
 Characterizing formally different kinds of interesting minds, especially minds that share some of the limitations and qualities of human minds, such as limited degrees of rationality;
 Developing methods for automating the construction of minds from such characterizations using computers or other mechanisms; and
 Solutions of Brigg's equation y''''y'^{2}  3y'''y''y' + 2(1  n^{2})y''^{3} = 0 for n > 3.
