Jessica Pfeifer

In addition to expertise she has gained as a result of her extensive scholarly, editorial, and administrative work within academia, Professor Pfeifer brings to the Philosophy of Science Association a range of financial and bookkeeping skills gained outside academia, skills that will serve the PSA well in advancing its mission of promoting research, teaching, and discussion of issues within the philosophy of science from diverse viewpoints. Professor Pfeifer is interested particularly in improving the PSA's institutional memory, facilitating the mentoring of philosophers of science at the start of their careers, and making the scientific community and the general public aware of the philosophy of science and its value in public discourse.

Professor Pfeifer has already assumed several of the jobs of the PSA Executive Secretary and Treasurer, including managing posts to the PSA-L Announcement List and the PSA jobs listing. In the near future she will assume all the duties of the position.
