I am a Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Western University, and Director of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy. I received a B.A. degree in Physics and Philosophy from Yale University in 1995, and pursued graduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh leading to a PhD. in History and Philosophy of Science in 2003. Prior to arriving at Western, I held a post-doctoral fellowship at the Dibner Institute for History of Science and Technology (MIT) and was an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at UCLA (2003-2007).
My main research interests are in history and philosophy of physics, general issues in philosophy of science, and seventeenth century natural philosophy. See my research page for more information.
