I am an associate professor of philosophy of science and currently academic director of Humanities at University College Groningen, a faculty of the University of Groningen. I am also an external member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP).
Prior to coming to Groningen in 2014, I substituted as professor of theoretical philosophy at the University of Göttingen after working as a postdoc in the research collaboration "Epistemology of the LHC" at the University of Wuppertal and as academic visitor at the University of Cambridge, UK. Previously, I studied physics and philosophy in Göttingen and Lausanne. I hold a PhD in philosophy from the University of Bonn, where Andreas Bartels was my supervisor, and a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Heidelberg, where Christof Wetterich was my supervisor.
