I have a PhD in philosophy and an MS in biology from Duke University. My biology masters thesis, which was published in January of 2013 in Evolution and Development as “Drosophila Mutants Suggest a Strong Drive Toward Complexity in Evolution”, was recently featured in Scientific American!

My research spans philosophy of biology, philosophy of science, theoretical biology, and biomedical ethics. I also have interests in the history of science, Darwin, philosophy and literature, existentialism, and Wittgenstein.
In my free time I enjoy classical music, opera, old movies from the 1930s and 40s and improving my graphic design skills.
