Nina Emery received her Ph.D. from MIT in 2012. Her research focuses on the intersection of metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of science, particularly the philosophy of physics. She is especially interested in the questions how and to what extent our best scientific theories should inform our metaphysics, and what impact that interaction has on other philosophical projects.

Professor Emery's current research topics include the role of probabilities in explaining frequencies in deterministic contexts, and the relationship between contemporary scientific theories that posit an unintuitive ontology and more traditional skeptical scenarios.
