I am a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Montana. I am also an Agrégée in Philosophy and a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure. I am an associate member of the IHPST, and a founding member of the Société de Philosophie des Sciences.

I have worked in the philosophy of quantum mechanics, specifically on Bell's theorem. I am now more interested in issues in general philosophy of science and the philosophy of ecology. My current project is to articulate a new notion of scientific understanding -- modal understanding. My next project will concern scientific experimentation on animals.
