My work focuses primarily on the metaphysics of science. I am interested in the basic concepts and categories that we invoke to describe the world as we find it in scientific investigation and everyday life. It is my belief that an adequate metaphysical theory must be scientifically-informed. As such, philosophical inquiry should go in hand with scientific theorizing.

The purpose of my research is to answer two related questions: (1) What is the most adequate conception of fundamental properties to accommodate the world that we inhabit? (2) What is the “big picture” world-view that emerges by adopting such a conception?
