Welcome

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, a Resident Fellow of the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science, and an External Member of the Munich Center for Mathematical PhilosophyLudwig-Maximilians-Universität. From July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2022, I am also McKnight Land-Grant Professor at the University of Minnesota.

I’m also on the leadership team for the interdisciplinary collaborative project on “The Many Faces of Reproducibility” at the University of Minnesota.

Pandemics notwithstanding, in the first half of January, 2021 I will be a Visiting Associate Research Professor in the Department of Logic & Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine, and in the second half of May and first week of June, 2021 a visitor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Washington.

Much of my work so far has concerned the foundations of physics and of statistics, and how problems in these fields inform and are informed by broader issues in the philosophy of science.  I also have interests in the conceptual and physical basis of computation, metaphilosophy, and the history of physics and philosophy of science.

Here on my webpage you can check out summaries of my recent research and teaching as well as download my publications and a current CV.

All the banners that appear at the top of these pages are from photographs I’ve taken from my travels around the world.
