I’m an assistant professor of philosophy at Virginia Tech.
My research is all about life science and environmental science: How do disciplines like biology and ecology manage to come to grips with the messy, chaotic, and complex phenomena that they study? How can we use results from these sciences to solve social and environmental problems? What does the general public need to know about life science and environmental science?
It is important to me to connect my research to the real world. In the past, that has meant teaching philosophy to under-served high school students. Right now, it means participating in community science initiatives in the Galápagos Islands and in the United States.
