I use social scientific methods (interviews and observations), historical sources, and results from cognitive science, to inform an on-going philosophical analysis of scientific imagination.

My recent focus has been on the tools that scientists use to empower and focus the imagination, including artificial intelligence, diagrams, computer models, thought experiments, logic, and metaphors.

Increasingly, I am concerned about the ethics of science, and non-scientific uses of artificial intelligence.
