About me:

I am a Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science at University College London. My research interests include the relations between art and science in the 20th century, American Pragmatism and the philosophy of Charles Sanders Peirce, scientific discovery and general issues in philosophy of science, with a particular focus on scientific representations.

I lectured extensively on the connections between art, science and philosophy in the 20th century and I am currently writing a book entitled “Beyond Resemblance: A Philosophical History of Representative Practices 1880-1914”.
