My philosophical views
I am currently Assistant Professor of Philosophy at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. Before that I held a post-doc with the AHRC Culture and the Mind Project at the University of Sheffield in the UK. My main interests are in the philosophy of psychology (particularly animal cognition and empirical moral psychology) and the philosophy of science (particularly Ockham's Razor/simplicity and scientific realism).
