About me

[Picture of me escaping into a forest] I’m based in the School of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Sydney..

My previous positions were also at the University of Sydney, where I carried out a five-year research project in the Department of Philosophy. Before coming to Sydney, I was a senior research fellow at Egenis, the University of Exeter. Prior to that, I spent a few years in Ford Doolittle’s evolutionary microbiology lab at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I did my PhD on evolutionary explanations in the social sciences and humanities at the Universities of Edinburgh and Sussex.
