Department of Philosophy, University of Arizona
I am Instructor of Philosophy at the University of Arizona and was previously Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester. My work concerns issues at the intersection of philosophy of science, metaphysics and the philosophy of physics.
I received my PhD in 2014 from the University of Arizona. My dissertation, Structures and Objects: A Defense of Structural Realism, was directed by Richard Healey. In it, I defend the view that the physical sciences can reveal only the structure of the world rather than the vast ontology of objects and properties that scientific realists traditionally recognize.
A summary of my dissertation and other research can be found here. Information about my teaching is here. My curriculum vitae is available as well.
