My work is on boundary of philosophy, logic, and geometry.  The questions motivating it are the nature of mathematical justification, generally, and the nature of geometric thought and reasoning, specifically.


I addressed them in my PhD thesis by developing an analysis of the diagrammatic proofs in Euclid’s Elements.  You can download the thesis, along with other writings of mine, from the writings page.  Click here for my research statement.
