Associate Professor & Director of Graduate Studies
I am an associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. In addition to my primary appointment at Carnegie Mellon, I am an associate fellow at the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh, a visiting professor at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (part of Ludwig-Maximilians Universität), and an associate editor of the journal Philosophy of Science.
I received a Ph.D. and M.A. in Philosophy from the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine. Before that, I received a B.S. in Philosophy from Kansas State University.
My research focuses on game theory, agent based modeling, and the philosophy of science.
