In Fall 2019, I will begin as an assistant professor of philosophy at Purdue University.
In Fall 2018, I began a post-doc working with Ford Doolittle at Dalhousie University. My research there concerns the history and philosophy of evolutionary theory, including work on issues in microbial evolution and work on conceptual change in biology (focusing on the 'homology' concept).
From 2012-2018, I completed a PhD in the department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University Pittsburgh, where I worked on the history and philosophy of evolutionary-developmental biology, the nature of reasoning in the biological sciences, and the history of systematics in the 19th century.
Prior to coming to Pittsburgh, I majored in biology and philosophy at The College of Wooster, in Wooster, Ohio.
