  • History and Philosophy of Science


I have lived in Portland, Oregon, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and now Southern California. I will be travelling to Japan in the near future, to visit family there. 


I have an interest in epistemology and philosophy of perception, and plan to focus research on perception, conceptual change, justification, and the relationships between these. A related topic which interests me is the question of what constitutes sound scientific methodology, and I think further work on the nature of conceptual change and epistemic justification has the potential to advance our understanding of this subject.
