About Me

I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of South Florida.    I have held visiting fellowships in the program in History and Philosophy of Science at Northwestern University, at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF), at the University of Bielefeld, and at the Institute for Advanced Study at The University of Durham.    I received my undergraduate degree in History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Science and Medicine from the University of Chicago, and my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from Indiana University in 1999.    My principle research interests are in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of physics, especially in the foundations, methodology and epistemology of computer simulations, the foundations of climate modeling, and in the foundations of statistical mechanics and the arrow of time.  I also have recent interest in theories of truth, especially disquotationalism.  I have published about twenty articles on these topics in such places as Philosophy of Science, The Journal of Philosophy, Synthese, Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics, Philosophy Compass, and Science in Context.    My book, Science in the Age of Computer Simulation, just appeared this fall from the University of Chicago Press.
