Latest News: (updated February 2015): I received a 50,000 € workshops series grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation for the Project “Evidence, causation and argumentation.” My collaborators for the project are Frank Zenker (Lund, Sweden) and Rani Lill Anjum (NNBU, Norway). I will post more information on the project and the workshop series here soon.
THE SHORT STORY:
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). I completed my Ph.D. at Tilburg University in 2011, under the supervision of Stephan Hartmann and Pieter Ruys, and later lectured at the Philosophy & Economics program at the University of Bayreuth.
My primary interests are in philosophy of science and epistemology, particularly in philosophy of economics and social epistemology. I’m currently working on problems of expertise and expert deliberation in economics and the social sciences. I also work on epistemic disagreement and the formation of consensus, and I recently started running some experiments on on biases in 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, and the University of Sydney.
