Philosopher of biology

I originally come from Denver, Colorado. I completed undergraduate degrees in General Biology and Philosophy at UC San Diego (John Muir College) and graduate degrees in Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Biological Sciences (M.S.) at Stanford University. I now work at Tufts University and live in Somerville, Massachusetts, although I'm often found wandering the more remote corners of the American West.

I am a philosopher of biology. I explore broad questions about the structure of science and the nature of evidence. I also have a keen interest in the evolutionary dynamics of social behaviors. My research interests trend towards the interdisciplinary, extending from philosophy of science into history, formal modeling, and evolutionary theory.

As an avid outdoorsman, I spend a lot of time (trying to get) on bikes, rocks, and trails. And I'll admit to a certain fondness for whiskey and science fiction.
