I am a philosopher of science with specific interests in computer simulation, climate science, and environmental philosophy. I received my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Toronto in 2015, after which I undertook a three-year postdoc at the University of Chicago. I have a dual appointment in the MSU Lyman Briggs College (75%) and the Department of Philosophy (25%). Topics of my current projects include:

  • The epistemology of computer simulation and measurement.
  • Conceptions of data and data’s role in scientific inference.
  • Quantitative reasoning in climate science and policy.
  • Values in science and science’s role within democracy.
