About

Research Interests    

My research is mainly on topics in the history and philosophy of economics. A number of these articles examine economics as it drew upon or impinged upon other disciplines, notably mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics. I have been motivated to understand, both historically and philosophically, why economics transformed into a mathematical discipline, and in what sense there are laws that govern the economy, or economic phenomena more specifically. I am currently continuing my study of Hume’s economics, as well as working on a new project that examines the overlap of biology and economics and the formation of bioeconomics.
