Nikolaj J. L. L. Pedersen's main research areas are epistemology, truth, metaphysics, and philosophy of logic. Much of NJLLP's recent and current work focuses on pluralism about truth, logic, or ontology (sometimes in combination). NJLLP also likes to think about non-evidential warrant,  epistemic value, and epistemic consequentialism—and, occasionally, the epistemology of absence-based inference, open-ended schemas, and neo-Fregeanism in the philosophy of mathematics. Recently, NJLLP has developed an interest in issues and questions related to adoption and plans to do research on these issues and questions in the future.


Prior to coming to Korea NJLLP received a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the Arché Research Centre, University of St. Andrews (2006) and then held two research fellowships—the first at UCLA, the second at the University of Copenhagen.
