I am currently a Research Fellow at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics in Canberra. Before expatriating to Australia, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Northwestern's Philosophy Department, and, before that, I was an Instructor for the Philosophy Department at CU - Boulder. I earned my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My dissertation, which I wrote under the supervision of Elliott Sober (Chair), Dan Hausman, Michael Titelbaum, and Peter Vranas, was on the topic of group rationality.
I am mainly interested in the problems that social phenomena cause for scientists and philosophers. For example, I am interested in the relationship between group rationality and individual rationality, the epistemic significance of disagreement, the difficulties for testing hypotheses in the social sciences, the effects of employing economic models in collective action problems like climate change, the impact of social structures on biological notions such as race, and the ethical considerations surrounding how race is used in science and society.
