I am a Professor in the Department of Philosophy, University of Bergen Before moving here in the Fall of 2012, I taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Philosophy Dept.) and the University of Cambridge (History and Philosophy of Science Dept.) Earlier on I did postdoctoral work at the University of Western Ontario. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto in 2006. My main area of specialization and competence is contemporary philosophy of science.
My work straddles the boundaries of philosophy of mathematics and philosophy of physics, with a component in the foundations of probability and statistics. I also have interests in the history of analytic philosophy, focusing on Quine and Wittgenstein (hence my involvement in the activities of the Wittgenstein Archives hosted by the University of Bergen). Recently, I began exploring the philosophical relevance of numerical analysis and of the psychological research on (early) mathematical cognition.
(And no, I don't have anything to do with this, unfortunately!)
