Kristoffer is a founding member of the Southern Normativity Group and a Research Associate at LSE's Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science. His primary research interest is in the epistemic good: what it is, and what empirical psychology can tell us about how limited creatures like us can attain it. He is currently involved in two projects:
- An investigation of the problems and prospects for epistemic consequentialism. This project is conducted together with Jeff Dunn (DePauw) and funded by the British Academy. As part of the project, Jeff and Kristoffer will be organising a workshop at LSE in November, 2014 and an international conference at Kent in 2015.
- A study of the virtues and vices of cognitive outsourcing, i.e., of handing over (outsourcing) one's information collection and processing (the cognitive) to others. The project is conducted as part of Lund University's project Knowledge in a Digital World, funded by the Swedish Research Council.
