Welcome to my website!
I am a Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy at the University of Calgary, working in the philosophy of science under the supervision of Dr. Marc Ereshefsky.
My research centers on the value-laden aspect of scientific inquiry and explores legitimate and fruitful ways to incorporate values in science. I critique the construal of science as a value-neutral enterprise and demonstrate how the core assumptions of value-neutral science are implicitly endorsed in philosophical issues regarding scientific classification, scientific disagreement, science denialism, and scientific progress. Using case study analyses to reveal multiple causal factors that influence scientific practice, I draw a richer picture of how science, embedded in a society, advances.
