Lecturer in Philosophy
PhD (Western Ontario)

I am interested in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of physics, and the philosophy of mathematics, particularly in relation to foundational questions arising in relativity and quantum mechanics, and also insofar as they are intertwined with the development of modern philosophy.

My research so far has focused on the conceptual foundations of the theories of Newton and Einstein, with an eye to the accounts of space, time, and causality that they motivate, and especially to their significance for the theory of theories and the theory of knowledge. All of these interests, though motivated by concerns peculiar to the exact sciences, form part of a broader interest in the analysis and revision of our fundamental concepts and the place of this task in philosophy in general.
