Philosophy of Science, Logic, Epistemology and Analytic philosophy. 
My contributions are the improved solutions I have provided to three paradoxes of confirmation. In my pursuit of solving the paradoxes, I propose the reformulation of the Bayesian framework. Moreover, in the discussion of the paradoxes, I have redefined various standard definitions (definitions of 'irrelevant conjunct' and 'instance confirmation…').
