My research investigates how the sciences can inform philosophy and how philosophy can inform the sciences. I am interested in the scientific inferences and strategies that scientists use to investigate complex biological systems without a guiding theory, especially ecology. My two main areas of research focus on (A) understanding scientific reasoning, methodology, and development and (B) how to do scientific metaphysics from a practice-centered view of science.
