Welcome to my home on the web!  Here you can find details about my current research, past publications, course catalogue, and conference presentations alongside some of my random opinions on random topics.

My teaching and research specialization is the epistemology of science, though I maintain an interest in nearly every area of philosophy.  My MA thesis focused narrowly on trying to understand why the debate between scientific realists and anti-realists seems to have reached a stalemate.  My PhD research worked to break this stalemate and breathe new life into the debate by investigating pragmatic reasons to adopt realism or anti-realism, rather than focusing exclusively on epistemic reasons as most philosophers have done to date.  More details about my primary research project can be found here.
