Chair of Theory of Science and Technology, RWTH Aachen University

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). In 2017 I moved to the RWTH Aachen University where I am building up the Computational Science Studies Lab (CSS-Lab).

Why do I have a personal website from the FU Freie Universität Berlin?
I am an alumni of the FU Freie Universität Berlin since 2014, where I have received my PhD in philosophy in 2001, have worked from 2004 to 2012 and teached from 2006 to 2014. Since 2015 I am a member of the Ernst-Reuter-Gesellschaft (ERG), which supports the FU Freie Universität Berlin.
