I am a historian and philosopher of science whose work focuses on the intersection of the earth and life sciences. I am particularly interested in the scientific study of geohistory: the integrated biological and geological history of the planet. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2021 with a dissertation called "Time, Life and Environment: Practices of Geohistory at the Intersection of the Earth and Life Sciences." Prior to this I was a graduate student in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. Recently, I became a dad, and this has greatly aided me in finding my own purpose (biological or otherwise). I use he/him pronouns.
