Jill North

Department of Philosophy, Cornell

I am an Associate Professor in the philosophy department at Cornell. I specialize in philosophy of physics. I also have interests in metaphysics and philosophy of science.

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