Research

My research is concentrated in two areas. First, in the philosophy of explanation and understanding, where I focus on topics such as the relation between explanation, understanding and unification, the contrastive nature of explanation, and the relation between causal and mathematical explanation. Second, on the border between philosophy of science and metaphysics, especially concerning the topics of causation and time.

Fields of interest

My tastes in philosophy are wide. In addition to metaphysics, philosophy of science and epistemology, I am most interested in philosophy of physics, the history of (modern) philosophy, hermeneutics, and connections between analytic and continental thought.
