Areas of interest
I work primarily in philosophy of science (especially, scientific representation, scientific models, scientific realism, evidence and confirmation, and explanation) and metaphysics (especially modality, laws of nature, properties, dispositions, possible worlds, and causation). I am currently Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. I founded, administer, and contribute to Matters of Substance: A Group Blog Devoted to Metaphysics and It's Only A Theory: A Group Blog Devoted to Metaphysics. I am the PhilPapers field editor for General Philosophy of Science and area editor for Models and Idealization, Scientific Realism, and Properties.
