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 properties, dispositions, laws of nature, and composition). I am currently Associate Professor in the Department 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.
