I’m a philosopher of science working on core questions around the scientific explanation of minimal living and cognitive systems, with a strong cross-disciplinary focus. I am currently working as a sessional lecturer at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
My dissertation “Let me explain: The dynamical alternative”, completed under the supervision of Dr. Patrick McGivern, studies the nature and role of scientific explanation in the special sciences, engaging with the renaissance of dynamical systems research within systems biology, neuroscience and psychology.
Along with my publications to date, it builds an alternative account of dynamical explanation suited to investigating cognitive and biological phenomena where mechanistic models are insufficient for explanation.
My research has been published in The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Biology & Philosophy, and Phenomenology & the Cognitive Sciences.
