My primary research interests are in the areas of philosophy of biology, philosophy of science, and history of philosophy of science. Much of my work is inspired by an appreciation for the complexity of the world's causal processes, and an interest in how scientific practice is shaped by grappling with that complexity.

I am especially interested in topics related to the role of idealizations in science, scientific explanation, science's relationship to the public, the relationships among different scientific fields and projects, the methodology of population biology, and the history of logical empiricism.
