I am a lecturer at the School of Philosophy in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University. I am a member of Tempo & Mode: Centre for Macroevolution and Macroecology (ANU), Sydney-ANU Philosophy of Biology Group and an affilliate member of the Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics at Macquarie University.

I work primarily at the intersection of the philosophy of biology, philosophy of cognitive science, and philosophy of science. I am particularly interested in the evolution of cognition and behaviour; the relationship between Evo-devo and the Neo-Darwinian Synthesis; model-based reasoning in biology and philosophy; and methodological issues in the study of animal behaviour and cognition.
