glacierbiography265x365My research focuses on central issues in the philosophy of science (the metaphysics and epistemology of science), including topics in the philosophy of physics and biology. Much of this work revolves around debates concerning scientific realism (such as versions of entity realism and structural realism) and antirealism (especially some versions of empiricism), as well as the nature of dispositions, causation, laws of nature, and natural kinds. I have worked on scientific modeling, representation, and attendant issues such as the nature of abstraction and idealization, and the consequences these practices have for concepts such as knowledge and truth, as well as the relationship between science, metaphysics, and the philosophy of science. My next project, to which I will turn shortly, concerns the epistemology of scientific disagreement.
