I am a philosopher of science at the University of Vienna. My primary fields of research are the philosophy of contemporary physics and a number of topics in general philosophy of science.
I am interested in the way the theories of modern fundamental physics influence and modify our conception of scientific theory building and our criteria for assessing the status of scientific theories. These developments amount to a shift in perspective that, I believe, may shed new light on a number of classical debates in general philosophy of science like the problem of novel confirmation and the scientific realism debate.
