I am a philosopher of science with a background in physics, philosophy, and theoretical biology. Officially I am Professor of Philosophy of Science and Technology at the Institute of Philosophy at Leibniz Universität Hannover, with a cross appointment as Professor in the Centre for Ethics and Law in the Life Sciences (CELLS). I also am Visiting Scholar in the Socially Engaged Philosophy of Science Group (SEPOS) group at Michigan State University.


I grew up in The Hague on the Dutch North Sea coast and was educated at Aloysius College and Leiden University. I live in Lansing, Michigan, and divide my time between Lansing and Hannover, Germany.
