Ph.D.: Philosophy (with concentration in mathematics), Cornell University, 2005
Jeffrey Roland received his Ph.D. in philosophy, with a concentration in mathematics, from Cornell University in 2005 after joining the philosophy faculty at LSU in 2004.
Dr. Roland teaches courses primarily in logic and epistemology and occasionally in philosophy of mathematics, metaphysics, and philosophy of science. His research focuses on issues in the philosophy of mathematics, epistemology, and the philosophy of science, particularly concerning the nature and scope of philosophical naturalism and the prospects for a realist philosophy of mathematics. His publications include articles in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, the Australasian Journal of Philosophy, and Pacific Philosophical Quarterly. He is currently working on a book defending mathematical realism, tentatively titled (originally enough) A Defense of Mathematical Realism.
