Jill North

Department of Philosophy, Rutgers

I am an Associate Professor in the philosophy department at Rutgers, where I got my PhD. I specialize in philosophy of physics. I also have interests in metaphysics and philosophy of science.

Before working at Rutgers, I was an Associate Professor in the philosophy department at Cornell. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor in the philosophy department at Yale, where I had studied physics and philosophy as an undergraduate. And before that, I was a Bersoff post-doc in the philosophy department at NYU.
