Michael Townsen Hicks

Welcome to my website.  I'm a philosopher of science; I recently defended a doctoral thesis at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, under the supervision of Barry Loewer.  Now I'm working on the Consolidation of Fine-Tuning Project at the University of Oxford. I'm interested in the metaphysics and epistemology of science and the philosophy of physics.
