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

Before joining the Dept. as an Associate Professor in the Fall of 2012, I held Lecturerships at University of Cambridge (History and Philosophy of Science Dept.) and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Philosophy Dept.) I did postdoctoral work at the University of Western Ontario after receiving a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto in 2006. I also hold 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 Quine and Wittgenstein - 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!)
