About Me

I am a McDonnell Post-doctoral Fellow in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology Program at Washington University in St. Louis. 

My primary research interests are in the philosophy of science. In my work, I explore 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. 

I received my Ph.D from the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I worked with Marc Lange, Matt Kotzen, and John Roberts

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