Researcher biography

I am an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry at The University of Queensland, Australia, and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Uppsala University, Sweden. I am currently working on my international postdoc project "Rush Rhees and Wittgenstein's Philosophy of Mathematics" as a Visiting Academic at The von Wright and Wittgenstein Archives at The University of Helsinki, Finland. My funding comes from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).

I work mainly in the philosophy of science and mathematics, and in applied logic. I have published on abstract-algebraic methods in leading journals such as Studia Logica and Information & Computation. With Kim-Erik Berts I wrote an introductory book to the philosophy of mathematics from the perspective of Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy. Another interest is the philosophy of Paul Feyerabend. I also have a recent interest in continental philosophy, and I have written and spoken on the thought of Simone Weil, Witold Gombrowicz and Hannah Arendt.

Previously, I was Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Gotland University College (today Uppsala University's Campus Gotland), where I helped set up a unique Great Books course for a new Liberal Arts degree. I was also a Research Fellow in Theoretical Computer Science at The University of Queensland at several occasions. I have been a Visiting Academic at Universität Augsburg, Universität Göttingen, and at Macquarie University in Sydney. I have a PhD in Philosophy from Uppsala University, Sweden, and a PhD in Theoretical Computer Science from Åbo Akademi, Finland.
