I apply formal epistemology to the philosophy of science in general and philosophy of medicine (mainly pharmacology) in particular. I am interested in a wide variety of problems, approaches and techniques. Very broadly speaking: I am interested in uncertainty and how to cope with it in general and in particular.

My background is in mathematics (inductive logic, uncertain reasoning) and in information systems (multi-agent systems).

Current Position
Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy within the Philosophy of Pharmacology Project, see here for our project website.

My  paper (draft!) on Variety of Evidence has been conditionally accepted by Erkenntnis.

Our “LOP1”-paper has now officially appeared.

The special issue on evidence amalgamation in the sciences with Synthese (see editing for details) is coming along nicely. The first eleven accepted papers are now out, contributions are by: Baetu, Bertolaso & Sterpetti, Claveau & Grenier, Danks & Pils, Frank, Heesen et al, Holman, Kao, Wilde & Parkkinen, Vieland & Chang and Wüthrich & Steele.

I’ve recently visited George Masterton in Lund (Sweden). Here, you can read about the trip.


We are in the process of launching a special issue (SI) on the notion of reliability with Synthese. Our proposal has been accepted and we will soon be calling for contributions to undergo double-blind peer-review.

We want to call for contributions which address the following topics [broadly construed]
– reliability, its uses and models in the sciences and methodologies (e.g., empirical, theoretical, social)
– reliability, its uses and models in the philosophy of these sciences to include, among other approaches, formal epistemology
– traditional main-stream approaches to reliability
– reliability and the replication crisis
– reliable inference.

Submissions will be due some time in autumn/winter this year.
