Philosophy of science and medicine


I’m a philosopher of science primarily interested in questions around experimental practices and knowledge production in science and medicine. In past research I’ve looked at the social epistemic conditions around the replication crisis in social psychology, the measurement and prediction of patient-reported outcomes in medicine, and the role of cognitive values in licensing experimental practices like robustness analysis. Currently, I’m researching fundamental issues and intersections in the production, measurement, and normative evaluation of biomedical evidence for both clinical and theoretical contexts. I also maintain a side interest in environmental philosophy and am a member of the 2019-2020 Jackman Humanities Institute working group on Planetary Resistance, Climate Change, and Computation.
