I’m a philosopher of science based in Australia with a particular interest in the philosophies of biology and the cognitive sciences. I received my doctorate from UOW in early 2021.
My work 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 especially. It also builds an alternative account of dynamical explanation suited to investigating cognitive and biological phenomena where mechanistic models are insufficient for explanation.
My work on scientific explanation has been published in The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Biology & Philosophy, and Phenomenology & the Cognitive Sciences.
My other research interests are the sociocultural and narrative basis of scientific explanation; enactive cognitive science; and building an account of process metaphysics for life and mind.
