I'm a philosopher of physics at the University of Delaware and chair of the Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium.

My current research focuses on the foundations of quantum field theory, classical mechanics, and string theory. I am also interested in philosophical questions about laws, explanation, causation, inductive logic, and intertheoretic relations. 

I studied physics and philosophy as an undergraduate at Harvard before completing my PhD at Princeton  in 2014 under the direction of Hans Halvorson.
