Doctoral Student

BA Philosophy and Sociology, Kent State University


My research investigates how different kinds of social connections and modes of interaction influence the production of knowledge. My projects fall into the areas Historical Sociology, Sociology of Knowledge, and Sociology of Science. My current project examines how systems of knowledge in the 20th century constituted empirical phenomena into objects of study, and how the epistemic content of these phenomena were adjudicated inside scientific discourse.

Beyond these empirical interests I am interested in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences with particular interest in articulating ontologically and epistemically defensible strategies for theorizing the social world.
