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 three UNM teaching awards: the 2011 UNM Alumni Association’s
Faculty Teaching Award, the 2009 Award for Teaching Excellence from UNM’s
College of Arts & Sciences, and the 2006-2007 UNM Outstanding Teacher
of the Year Award.
Currently, I am serving
as the Graduate Director for the Philosophy Department.
