I’m a philosopher of biology and behavioral science, philosopher of science, and evolutionary game theorist.  I am a Chancellor’s Professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at UC Irvine.   I just finished co- administering the NSF grant “Consensus, Democracy, and the Public Understanding of Science” with philosopher of physics James Owen Weatherall (previous NSF grant Social Dynamics and Diversity in Epistemic Communities).  Our co-authored trade book The Misinformation Age was published with Yale University Press.  My monograph The Origins of Unfairness was published in July 2019 by Oxford University Press.  My books Games in the Philosophy of Biology and Modeling Scientific Communities were published in the CUP elements series.  I also write public philosophy.

When not busy doing philosophy, I am a poultry enthusiast, Irish step dancer, and mother of dragons (children).  My Erdos-Bacon number is 7.
