I'm a philosopher at the University of Washington. For the most part, I think about space and time.
My current project (with Jim Weatherall) concerns the question of whether the geometry of spacetime can be considered merely a convention. (Answer: No.)
Recently, I was the recipient of the UW Distinguished Teaching Award.
A summary of my research can be found here. Information about my teaching is here.
A curriculum vitae and a number of my papers are also available.
