My dissertation research is about the meanings of terms across theories. I'm formulating a theory of Newtonian Gravity with torsion and investigating its relation to Teleparallel Gravity.
I'm also interested in how we gain knowledge from large-scale simulations in astrophysics and cosmology and whether the opacity of such simulations can be overcome.
I care deeply about pedagogical strategies for teaching philosophy and effective methods for pedagogical training.
In my dissertation research, I investigate curvature/flatness across theories of gravity.
I also have a manuscript investigating the meaning/use of energy conditions (conditions imposed in General Relativity to capture the intuition that energy should be positive) across theories of gravity (manuscript available upon request).
I'm investigating whether comparisons of astrophysical codes (in particular, their implementations of self-interacting dark matter) can be used as a methodology to increase our confidence in such simulations. I've also argued that the use of "black-boxes" need not undercut the development of scientific understanding (click for more).
