Research

I work in the History and Philosophy of Science, especially the History and Philosophy of Biology, Environmental Ethics, and Business Ethics.
The central thrust of my past research concerned the history of early structural virology and I have explored various philosophical issues raised by the history.

I am currently working on two books: "Cancer Virus Hunters," a history of tumor virology, the study of viruses that cause cancer; and "Philosophy of Virology," an introduction to the philosophcial issues raised by viruses
