Prof. Dr. Gabriele Gramelsberger
Alumni FU Berlin
ERG member


I am a philosopher who is interested in the influence of computation on science and society and the applicability of mathematics. I have conducted an extensive study on the influence of computer based simulation on science, in particular in climate research (2002 - 2008) and cell biology (2009 - 2014).
