About

I will be a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year.

Qualifications

I received my PhD from Harvard University in May 2014. My undergraduate degree is from Davidson College.

Biography

My primary research interests are in the metaphysics of science, especially physics. I am particularly interested in whether - and, if so, when and how - premises concerning physical theories may lend support to metaphysical conclusions.

Postgraduate supervision

I am happy to supervise postgraduate work in metaphysics and philosophy of science.

Research

Recent and current research topics include: laws of nature, metaphysical and scientific explanation, quantum holism and the metaphysics of quantum mechanics, and reductive realism.

Publications

  • "Schaffer's 'The Action of the Whole'" (Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society, forthcoming)
  • "Quantum Entanglement, Bohmian Mechanics, and Humean Supervenience" (Australasian Journal of Philosophy, 2013).
