About Me


I am an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Department of the University of Oklahoma. I received my PhD in philosophy from the University of North Carolina in 1995. I work almost exclusively in the area of epistemology, though my philosophical interests range more widely, especially into the philosophy of science, value theory and ethics.
