Research

My main research interests are in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of biology.

While time is undoubtedly¬†important in biological systems, the role it plays has remained philosophically underexplored.¬†My dissertation, entitled “On Time and Process in Biology”, aims to shed light on this underdeveloped area of philosophy of biology. My work takes a practice-centered approach and focuses on the recently developed process framework for biology. Ultimately arguing that both of these perspectives are important for understanding the nature of time in biology, and the future of reductionism and pluralism in biological science more generally.

I also have research interests in the evolution of morality and have a work in progress examining the evolution of norms in non-human animals.

Finally, I am interested in the philosophy of logic – specifically in dialetheism and paraconsistent logics. I have a work in progress examining the possibility of metaphysical dialetheism- that there might be contradiction in the world itself.
