I want to understand the explanatory and ontological relations (and differences) between social and natural sciences. 

My doctoral thesis was on metaphysics and the philosophy of mind, defending physicalism about consciousness. Remarkable though our subjective experience is, and however physically inexplicable it may seem, I argued, it is nonetheless part of the natural world. The central idea was published as a journal article.

Nowadays I've moved on from zombies (but I still have views!) to pursue the same broad naturalistic project in the philosophy of science, borrowing notions of explanatory pluralism from metaphysics to fit the various sciences of people into an ontologically unified world. 

Before turning to philosophy, I was a US tax lawyer, but it didn’t help.
