Biography

I specialize in philosophy of science, epistemology, and metaphysics. Specifically, I work on questions in philosophy of time, epistemology of measurement, epistemology of trust, and philosophy of physics and mathematics. Some of my work on philosophy of time looks at how clocks, physical theories, and epistemology of measurement can be used to critique and inform metaphysical accounts of time. My work in epistemology of trust considers the role of prior experience in developing beliefs about trustworthiness with respect to scientific authority and AI.
