Overview

OverviewText1

  • My interests fall in the overlap between philosophy of science and the surrounding areas of epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language and mind. Currently, I'm working on epistemic relativism in relation to scepticism, as well as the relation between science and common sense and the question of whether natural kinds are the ground of induction.
