I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Mount Holyoke College and affiliated graduate faculty in the Department of Philosophy at UMass Amherst.
My research focuses on the intersection between philosophy and science. I'm especially interested in questions about the nature of time, space, possibility, and probability. My recently published book, Naturalism Beyond the Limits of Science, sets out my views on these topics.
I recently finished a term as President of the Society for the Metaphysics of Science and am currently President of the Philosophy of Time Society. If you're a philosopher with interests in these areas, you should consider joining either or both of these great organizations and submitting your work to our meetings.
I live on a dirt road in western Massachusetts with my family, my dog, and a bunch of chickens. I spend pretty much all of my free time outside skiing, running, mountain biking, and working in my garden.
