I am a philosopher specializing in the nature of the biological sciences. I am currently finishing a manuscript with the working title Charles Darwin, Reluctant Statistician. The book demonstrates how Darwin used statistics and probability theory throughout his career to develop his ideas on evolution.

I have published papers on a variety of topics, including: the nature of evolutionary theory, statistical explanation, innateness, and teleology. See my publication page for more detail.

I am the Director of Graduate Studies for Mizzou's Philosophy Department. We are currently accepting applications for the PhD program.

I am also the Director of Mizzou's Arts and Science Writing Fellows Program.

Among my hobbies, I enjoy making functional pottery. I contribute some of my wheel-thrown bowls and mugs to the Garden Gate School which is located in the backyard  of my Columbia, MO home which I share with my family and a variety of animals: dogs Méline (pictured in the banner of this website) and Penny, cat Mika, and four chickens (the Punnett Twins, Penelope, and Sage). 

I have two daughters. Hannah is a pastry chef, Amalia is a sophomore at Mizzou majoring in Anthropology.
