I am a Teaching Associate in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. Prior to this, I have held posts at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point's Department of Philosophy, where I was an Assistant Professor (Winter 2017), and the University of Pittsburgh, where I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science (Fall 2016) and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Science (2015-16)

My research examines the ways in which concrete and abstract scientific models enable learning about the physical systems they represent. I aim to understand what is distinctive about the kind of representation performed using these models and what makes them effective cognitive aids. I am particularly interested in the roles that different kinds of representations play in contemporary and historical practices of molecular structure determination.
