I am Edward Elliott. I am a Lecturer in Mind and Language at the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science at the University of Leeds. I'm presently in the middle of a 2-year Marie Curie IR Fellowship, on the Nature of Credence.
I mainly work on what might be called formal philosophy of mind. The focus of my research is on the nature of mental representation, with a particular emphasis on degrees of belief and other ‘quantitative’ propositional attitudes.
I also have research interests in formal epistemology, decision theory, and the philosophy of language. My current work is on the de-idealisation of representation theorems for decision theory, the interpretation of imprecise credences, and the relationship between quantitative and qualitative degrees of belief.
I received by PhD from the Australian National University in November 2015, under the supervision of David Chalmers (chair), Alan Hájek, Rachael Briggs, Hanti Lin and Wolfgang Schwarz. The title of the thesis was Representation Theorems and the Grounds of Intentionality, and can be found here.
