About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Lichtenberg Group for History and Philosophy of Physics at the University of Bonn; I am also affiliated with the Harvard University's Black Hole Initiative and involved in the Next Generation Event Horizon Telescope. I work in foundations of physics and philosophy of science, in particular:

  • applications and interpretations of global spacetime properties in general relativity;

  • philosophy of astrophysics;

  • history of general relativity in the 1950s and 1960s;

  • inter-theoretical relations and non-empirical theory assessment in some approaches to quantum gravity;

  • foundational issues in quantum field theory in curved spacetime and black hole thermodynamics.

My other academic interests include mathematical logic, human enhancement, and ethical, social, and legal issues in space exploration. My PhD is from Jagiellonian University in Cracow; in 2020 my dissertation (on determinism in general relativity) received a Polish prime minister prize for outstanding research.
