Robert Rynasiewicz, a faculty member in the Department of Philosophy at The Johns Hopkins University, has been promoted to the rank of professor.

The university's board of trustees approved the promotion, which will take effect July 1.

Rynasiewicz joined the faculty as an assistant professor in 1986 and was promoted to associate professor in 1992. He specializes in the philosophy of science, particularly in the philosophy of physics and its history. He has investigated issues ranging from the structure and interpretation of scientific theories to the idea of the universality of the laws of nature. He also studies issues in the foundations of space and time.

He also teaches courses in logic.

Rynasiewicz graduated from Brown University in 1974 with a major in physics. He earned a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Minnesota in 1981.
