My chief research program aims to systematize and to explain Immanuel Kant's views on the inexact sciences — chemistry, psychology, anthropology, and biology — by contextualizing his views with respect to the science of his day. More generally, I am interested in theoretical philosophy and its interplay with mathematics and natural science during the early modern and early analytic periods. In the classroom, I aim to create inclusive learning environments in which students actively practice and develop skills of critical reasoning, argumentation, and writing.
