About
Appignani Foundation Professor. His research focuses on central issues in the philosophy of science, metaphysics, and epistemology. These include debates about scientific realism (e.g., versions of entity and structural realism) and antirealism (e.g., versions of empiricism), the nature of dispositions, causation, laws of nature, natural kinds, scientific modeling and representation, and disagreement, and interconnections between science, metaphysics, and epistemology. He has held professorships and visiting positions at the Universities of Toronto, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Sydney, and is the author of Scientific Ontology: Integrating Naturalized Metaphysics and Voluntarist Epistemology (Oxford University Press, 2017) and A Metaphysics for Scientific Realism: Knowing the Unobservable (Cambridge University Press, 2007).
