I am an Associate
Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Mexico. Before joining the UNM faculty in 2005, I
taught at Fresno State for two years, and before that, I was a graduate
student at Indiana University, where I earned my PhD in the History and
Philosophy of Science. My research
focuses on the interplay of philosophy, mathematics, and science in the
early modern period (and in the work of Descartes, Newton, and Kant, in
particular). When time and energy
permit, I also think about how to integrate the history of philosophy, mathematics,
and science into current debates concerning the aims of science.
I regularly teach courses
in early modern philosophy and philosophy of science, and I am the
recipient of four UNM teaching awards: the 2014 Presidential Teaching
Fellowship, the 2011 Faculty Teaching Award from the UNM Alumni Association,
the 2009 Award for Teaching Excellence from the College of Arts &
Sciences, and the 2006-2007 Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award.
Currently, I am serving
as the Chair of the UNM Philosophy Department.
