  • My research is on topics at the intersection of philosophy and education in areas such as critical thinking and argumentation, computer-aided argument mapping, citation analytics, philosophy of education, and education-related debates in cognitive science. I also have broad interests in pedagogy and postgraduate student learning. I recently edited (with Ron Barnett) the *Palgrave Handbook of Critical Thinking in Higher Education* (2015).
