About Me

I am a historian of the philosophy of science, including the history of science and of mathematics. My work centers on the development of scientific theories and their philosophical interpretation and analysis. That history also engages with the changing relationship between the sciences and the humanities, as well as the ways that science itself is characterized and pursued.
