I am Professor in the Department of Philosophy, University of Bergen.
Before joining the Dept. as an Associate Professor in the Fall of 2012, I held lecturerships 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 a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto in 2006, a BA in Philosophy (2001) and a BSc in Mathematics (1997), both from 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 have longstanding interests in epistemology and the history of analytic philosophy, focusing on Wittgenstein (and Quine) – hence my membership in the editorial board of the Springer book series Nordic Wittgenstein Studies.
(And no, I don't have anything to do with this - unfortunately!)
