I am a philosopher of science, working on issues in modality (generality and contingency). My published work looks at the generality of scientific models, and contingency in evolution. I have research interests in artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, and how values interact with the way we perceive and explain the world.

I got my B.A. in the philosophy department at the University of Toronto, and my Ph.D. at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Technology at the University of Toronto. Since then I have been a lecturer for the U of T philosophy department, and an LTE Assistant Professor for the Trent University Philosophy department, as well as teaching in the Cognitive Science program at U of T.
