My core research projects are in philosophy of biology/paleobiology. Specifically, I am interested in conceptual and empirical issues related to the inference of behavior from the fossil record (using morphometrics and foraging models) and, generally, in the influence of behavior on morphology and vice versa. Additionally, I am of the view that historians and philosophers can play a positive role in the direct construction and evaluation of scientific models.
