I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Montana. I am an Agrégée in Philosophy and a former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure

My research has long focused on the philosophy of physics, especially the philosophy of quantum physics, as well as on modeling, especially in physics and ecology.  Recently, I have become interested in issues regarding the relationship between science and values.

I regularly teach classes in the philosophy of science, the foundations of ecology, modern philosophy, and philosophy of law.

I am also the coordinator of the pre-law program at the University of Montana. Please go to the UM PRELAW PROGRAM WEBSITE for more information.
