I am currently an associate professor (without tenure) in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University and an associate editor of the journal Philosophy of Science. My research focuses on game theory, agent based modeling, and the philosophy of science. I received a Ph.D. and M.A. in Philosophy from the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine. Before that, I received a B.S. in Philosophy from Kansas State University. While at Kansas State I was an intercollegiate debater, with some success.
I'm originally from Manhattan, Kansas; my mother and father are both professors at Kansas State. I have a wonderful, lovely partner Korryn Mozisek who is an assistant professor in the department of Communication, Media, and Technology at La Roche College.
I spend a lot of time working, as one might expect. When I stumble over spare time, I like to play poker, garden, or contribute to Wikipedia. My work on Wikipedia is largely fueled by my interest (obsession) with open-source and copyleft.
