Philosophy of Science in Practice, Philosophy of Measurement, Measurement in the Health Sciences, Bioethics, Science and Values, History of Science
After several years away from the academy, I was excited to join the graduate program in philosophy at the University of South Carolina, first as an MA student and later as a member of the PhD program. My research focuses on philosophy of science in practice and particularly on philosophy of measurement. My dissertation work is on epistemic and methodological problems related to health-related quality of life measures. I am especially interested in the use of modeling in health measurement and in the validity and invalidity of health measures.
