Welcome to my site!
I currently teach at San Francisco State University. My main research interests are in epistemology and philosophy of science. I also work on the role of the history and philosophy of science in science and math education.
I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Philosophy of Science, and graduated from the University of Western Ontario and the Rotman Institute of Philosophy. I worked at the Boston University Center for Philosophy and History of Science. In Boston, I took part in a teaching and research project (ITOP), helping to incorporate the history and philosophy of science into science teachers’ professional development.
I have been Assistant Editor for the journal Science & Education, and Council member of the International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching group (IHPST). I have also worked as an Editorial Assistant for the European Journal for Philosophy of Science.
I pronounce my name [jan be.ne.tʁo (dy.pɛ̃)] and an Americanized version might sound like YAHN be-ne-TROH (-doo-PEN).
