Ted Shear







I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Economics at the University of Queensland. My current position, supervised by John Quiggin and Laurie Paul, involves research on their ARC funded grant "Epistemically feasible choice: implications for sustainable risk management" to investigate the implications of transformative experience for decision theory. My PhD will be awarded in the Spring of 2017 from Philosophy Department at the University of California, Davis.

While my philosophical interests are broad, my current research projects surround issues in epistemology relating to the diachronic norms of rational belief. I have an ongoing interest in philosophical methodology and a penchant for using formal tools to elucidate traditionally philosophical problems and concepts.

Outside of philosophy, I am an avid rock climber and a former member of the US National Badminton Team.
