As a postdoc fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) I am doing research in formal philosophy. The second focus of my research centers about topics in science communication with the central question: How can mathematical philosophy be communicated and made visible to promote our discipline? Some of my efforts are documented on the MCMP media page. In 2013 I was teaching philosophy of science (at Mainz University), theories of causation (at the University of Pécs, Hungary), and topics in philosophy and robotics (at Venice International University); I organized the Conference "Models and Decisions" (10-12 April, 2013) and the 17th UK and European Meeting on "Foundations of Physics" (29-31 July, 2013) in Munich.
Currently I am organizing the following events:
- Workshop on "Imprecise Probabilities in Statistics and Philosophy" (June 2014)
- Trans-Continental Meeting "Bridges 2014" in New York City (September/October 2014)
My research centers around formal epistemology, causal modeling and the metaphysics of causation, probability theory, Bayesian networks, and algorithmical aspects of classical and philosophical logic. I have a background in logic, computational linguistics, automata theory, databases, object oriented programming, and cognitive linguistics. In my doctoral thesis I dealt with causal inference from structured knowledge in an extended Bayes net interventionist setting.
