About. I'm Professor of Philosophy and Founding Faculty and Co-Director of the Institute for Practical Ethics. Other positions include: the Freedom and Responsibility in Science Committee of the International Science Council, Paris; Founding Faculty at the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute at UC San Diego; Faculty, The John Bell Institute, Hvar, Croatia.

From 1996-2000 I worked in the Department of Philosophy, Logic & Scientific Method at the London School of Economics. I obtained my Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1997. 


My main area of research and teaching is philosophy of science, with special emphasis on physics, time, and the environment. My book What Makes Time Special? (Oxford University Press, 2017) won the 2018 Lakatos Award. Here are some book reviews: Philosophy of Science, Philosophical ReviewMetascience, BJPS, NDPR. I've also won two Chancellor's Associates Excellence Awards, the 2018-19 Award in Research and the 2007-8 Award in Graduate Teaching.  

When I'm not working I'm probably paddling...a lot
