Research Interests

My work is on the epistemology of psychiatric medicine. I examine psychiatric diagnostic manuals and determine the theories of disease that lead to the determination of sets of symptoms and behaviors as disorders. I am interested in how disorders come into being and whether diagnostic manuals are consistent in their theories of disease. I am also exploring the implications that an inconsistent diagnostic manual holds within a realist framework.
