About me

I work in history and philosophy of the biological and biomedical sciences. A particular interest has been the integration of history and philosophy of science.

I earned degrees in medicine (1999–2005) and history and philosophy of science (2003–2007) from the University of Bern in Switzerland. My dissertation research was on the regulation of RNA splicing at the Institute of Cell Biology of the University of Bern (Dr. med., 2007). From 2008 to 2014, I was at the department of philosophy of the University of Bern.

My current project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. In the academic year 2014–2015 I was a Visiting Fellow at Pittsburgh’s Center for Philosophy of Science. In 2015–2016, I was a Visiting Scholar at the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge.

Currently, I am at the department of philosophy at the University of Geneva.
