About

tempImageFnfICH_edited.jpg

I am a Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am also the Associate Chair of the UNC Philosophy Department. My main research interests are in Aristotelian natural philosophy and philosophy of science, and I have written two monographs on these topics, Explanation and Teleology in Aristotle’s Science of Nature (CUP 2010) and From Natural Character to Moral Virtue in Aristotle (OUP 2017). I am also the editor of Aristotle's Physics: A Critical Guide (CUP 2015), and my papers have appeared in Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, Journal of the History of Philosophy, Phronesis, Apeiron, and a number of edited volumes. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Journal of the History of Philosophy and on the Editorial Board of Apeiron


I am working on another book-length project on facts, evidence, and observation in Aristotle’s natural science and especially as they pertain to Aristotle’s natural scientific study of women and motherhood.
