Assistant Professor (Research) in the Department of Philosophy  


I joined the department in 2019 as a British Academy postdoctoral fellow. My fellowship project “Renormalization: a Philosophical Study” traces the conceptual development of renormalization theory in post-war physics and assesses its implications for debates about scientific realism and emergence in the philosophy of science.
