I am a professor at Middlebury College in Vermont (USA). My research interests include the general philosophy of science, philosophy of social science, and epistemology. In the spring of 2018, I was promoted to full professor. In 2017, I received the American Council of Learned Societies' Burkhardt Award, which is currently funding a five-year project, Explanation as Inferential Practice. My teaching interests overlap with my research interests, but also include logic, formal semantics, metaphysics, and a budding interest in cognitive science. I am also an enthusiastic musical hobbyist, who plays bass, guitar, oud, and electronic devices. My genres of choice are jazz, avant garde, and rock. I enjoy performance, improvisation, and composition. I'm fortunate to have two adorable dogs.
