I’m a philosopher and ethicist of science, focused on understanding the aims, values, and methods of science in general, and biology in particular. I'm also interested in understanding the ground of attitudes (trust/distrust) towards science, technology, and specific theories (esp. natural selection).

I publish broadly on philosophy of biology, general philosophy of science, research integrity, bioethics, moral psychology, and social epistemology.
