I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and affiliate of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University.
My three primary interests are:
(i) the philosophy of physics,
(ii) the philosophy of neuroscience, and
(iii) general philosophy of science.
Most recently, I have been focusing on the following issues:
(i) The many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. Does it explain the Born probability rule? Does it restore locality to quantum physics? How are worlds characterized?
(ii) The integrated information theory of consciousness. Does it explain consciousness or does it just describe its physical correlates? What evidence justifies it? Which philosophy of mind is it best paired with?
(iii) The nature of scientific explanation. Do reductive explanations require a priori entailment? Do proofs in pure mathematics sometimes explain what is proved?
