About

This blog is a mix of personal and professional reflections. I’m a PhD Candidate at the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, at the University of Toronto. I mainly work on questions surrounding scientific explanation, and its contrasts with other ways of approaching the world. I’m particularly interested in how the complexity of biology impacts our ability to produce explanations, and the consequences of that interaction for how we need to think about parts and wholes.

I did an Honours BA as a specialist in Philosophy, at the University of Toronto. When I’m not doing philosophy, I like to dabble in craft, spend time with my wife and our cat, and practice tai-chi.
