With degrees in philosophy and applied physics, I am a philosopher and a scientist. My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of science, philosophy of computation, epistemology, and applied ethics to technology and science. I work on unification, explanation, model-based reasoning, laws of nature, perspectival realism, trust, and metacognitive aspects of science practice. In philosophy of physics, I investigate space-time models of unified field theories, the philosophical assumptions of quantum gravity (string theory, especially string dualities), and semi-classical models. In addition, I am highly interested in the philosophical aspects of cognitive science and computational science (numerical simulations, machine learning, and evolutionary computation). Recently, I have been involved with the emerging area of ‘computational ethics’ (or ‘machine ethics’) and models of artificial moral agency based on AI and machine learning.
I teach on similar topics that impact our world and on how we pass this knowledge to future generations: philosophy of science, the philosophy of AI and its application in science and everyday life, the philosophy of other emerging technologies, logic, epistemology, or philosophy of mind and cognitive science.
