Project Description: My research largely explores the limits of science in identifying causal relationships and scientific laws. I do this by integrating methods and perspectives from a range of disciplines including the philosophy of science, mathematical and statistical methods, and a number of fields across the sciences. A central area of research while with CPNSS is to outline the set of foundational assumptions and limitations we face in identifying causal relationships.
