About Me

I a
m a sixth-year doctoral candidate in the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I work with Marc Lange, Matt Kotzen, and John Roberts.

My pr
imary research interests are in the philosophy of science. My dissertation explores how the growing reliance on computer simulation in scientific practice challenges
traditional conceptions of the scientific method. I argue that scientists employ simulations to explain, confirm, and generate new hypotheses in ways that are largely impracticable with laboratory and field experiments. Abstracts of a few of my papers are available here.

I am also involved in the wonderful philosophy outreach program at UNC.

In 2010-2011, I was the Davies-Jackson M.Phil Scholar at St. John's College, Cambridge.
