I have taught at the University of Washington since 2012, first as an Acting Assistant Professor, and then as a Lecturer/Assistant Teaching Professor. I teach across the curriculum, having taught 15 different courses across the following areas: History of Philosophy -- Modern and 20th Century -- Ethics, Applied Ethics, Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Science, Logic, and Practical Reasoning. You can find my teaching statement, and a few reading lists I put together on women in early 20th century analytic philosophy and also scientific communication here.
My research is mainly in the history of philosophy and philosophy of science. I'm particularly interested in values and science, debates about philosophical methodology in the history of analytic philosophy, and Kant and 20th century philosophy of science (the topic of my 2011 dissertation). Read more about my research and find links to recent talks here.
Outside of academic philosophy, I feature edited an issue of ARCADE titled: "Authenticity: Navigating the Real in Cities, Design, and Art," with essays on restoration, preservation, conscientious design, etc. I've also written about Kant and tunnel-boring machines for The Stranger, "Seattle's Only Newspaper," and published an essay on treason with Doug Paletta in Arrested Development and Philosophy.
I am from Roswell, NM.
