Welcome to my webpage. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (TINT in short).
Latest News: (updated October 2015): The first workshop of the Evidence, Causation and Argumentation project will take place in Helsinki on October 29,30 2015. PROGRAM AND ABSTRACTS. You can find more information on the project here.
ABOUT ME, THE SHORT STORY:
My primary interests are in philosophy of science and epistemology, particularly in philosophy of the social sciences, philosophy of economics, and social epistemology. I’m currently working on problems of expertise and evidence in economics and the social sciences. I also work on epistemic disagreement, the formation of consensus, and on biases of judgment. You can find a more detailed description of those and other research activities of mine here.
The core of my work is in philosophy, but my academic formation and research are interdisciplinary. At Tilburg University I wrote my Ph.D. thesis in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Business Administration, and I have studied economics and public policy, besides philosophy, at UCLA and the University of Padova. I have been a visiting student at several universities, including St. Andrews, UCLA, UPenn, the University of Sydney, and at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy.
