My primary research interest is on the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences. I ask general philosophy of science questions -- How can we tell if a scientific method is reliable? Is our observation theory-laden? Should science be value-free and what does that even mean? -- in the context of (primarily) psychology and sociology. I'm in the process of writing my Ph.D. dissertation, which aims to provide a philosophy of science perspective on some of the methodological issues that are especially salient in the social sciences.
