Personal profile

Research interests

I explore standard issues in philosophy of science and metaphysics from the perspective of chemistry. I am particularly interested in how chemistry is related to physics and whether chemical stuff exist. I am also intrigued by the use of models and idealisations in chemical practice, especially with respect to how they may influence our understanding of chemical entities and their properties.
