Dr. Rohwer earned his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri in 2012.

He has developed many new philosophy courses for the students at Oregon Tech—including philosophy of science courses, logic courses and courses in applied ethics. Dr. Rohwer is the faculty advisor for Oregon Tech’s Philosophy Club.

Dr. Rohwer is currently working on research projects in environmental ethics, bioethics, and, of course, the philosophy of science.
