Howdy! I am a philosopher in the department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine.  My research focuses on the conceptual and mathematical foundations of physics, and the broader impacts of philosophy of physics on general issues in philosophy of science including interpreting physical theories, scientific representation, and scientific explanation.  My primary focus is on the foundations of our best quantum theories and the classical theories that we “quantize” to arrive at them.  I also have interests in philosophy of probability, epistemology, metaphilosophy, and the history of science.  You can find a CV here.
