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 held two fixed-term lecturer positions at University of Cambridge (History and Philosophy of Science Dept. 2008-2010) and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Philosophy Dept. 2010-2012). I was also a Rotman Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Western Ontario in 2007- 2008. I received a PhD in philosophy in 2006 from Univ. of Toronto, where I moved after I studied mathematics and philosophy at Univ. of Bucharest. Most recently (Jan - June 2019), I was a Visiting Scholar at Univ. of California, Irvine LPS.

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, but I often venture into metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of logic and history of science and mathematics. I also have longstanding interests in the history of analytic philosophy. I focus, among other things, on Quine and especially on later Wittgenstein (hence my membership in the editorial board of the Springer book series Nordic Wittgenstein Studies)

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