About

I'm Professor in the Department of Philosophy, University of Bergen, Norway.

Before joining the Dept. as an Associate Professor in the Fall of 2012, I taught at University of Cambridge (History and Philosophy of Science Dept. 2008-2010) and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Philosophy Dept. 2010-2012). I did postdoctoral work at the University of Western Ontario in 2007- 2008. In 2006 I got a PhD in philosophy from Univ. of Toronto, where I moved after I studied mathematics and philosophy at Univ. of Bucharest.

My main area of specialization and competence is contemporary philosophy of science. More specifically, 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 longstanding interests in epistemology and the history of analytic philosophy, focusing, among other things, on Wittgenstein (hence my membership in the editorial board of the Springer book series Nordic Wittgenstein Studies).

(And no, unfortunately I don't own this.)
