Tanner Leighton

I am a third year student in the PhD program. My primary research interests concern the history and philosophy of physics, especially quantum theory. Recently, I have been thinking about the history and viability of pragmatist approaches to interpreting quantum theory. I'm also interested in general philosophy of science, pragmatism in general philosophy and (meta)metaphysics. Before coming to Pitt, I received a B.S. in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, where I studied under Jos Uffink and Samuel C. Fletcher.
