Much of my work so far has concerned the foundations of physics and of statistics, and how problems in these fields inform and are informed by broader issues in the philosophy of science. I also have interests in the conceptual and physical basis of computation, the philosophy of applied mathematics, and the history of physics and philosophy of science.
