I am a philosopher of science, specializing in the history and philosophy of physics. My main research question is: how have developments within the natural sciences influenced philosophical thought and shaped our worldview? At the moment, my main project deals with the impact of quantum mechanics on philosophical developments, throughout the twentieth century. I am also interested in the philosophical aspects of physics in the nineteenth and eighteenth century, and the origins of our image of classical physics.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Science and Technology Studies at the University of Wuppertal, Germany. I studied physics and history and philosophy of science at Utrecht University, and obtained a PhD in philosophy at Ghent University.
