Welcome!

I am a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Sciences at the London School of Economics. I investigate the cognitive processes used by scientists to increase scientific understanding. These include counterfactual reasoning, thought experiments, and model-based reasoning.

In 2015-16 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh, where I performed an ethnographic study on scientific imagination in a systems biology laboratory, while also carrying out some experimental philosophy of imagination. At the LSE I have been working on the role of imagination in the use of scientific representation. Starting January 2018, I will be a visiting scholar at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. Please feel free to download my papers here. My CV is here. All correspondence is welcome!
