About me

I am a philosopher at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), working in philosophy of science and medicine. I lead the Centre for Applied Philosophy of Science (NMBU CAPS), together with Yevgeniya TomkivMy expertise is in the philosophy of causality, complexity, probability and risk, and other philosophical biases in science that influence choice of theory, method, policy and practice. I use Twitter for professional networking. I love experimenting in my teaching and I made a syllabus in podcast episodes for my Introduction to Philosophy class, to reduce screen time when teaching went digital. I have written about my experience with teaching during the pandemic for Daily Nous.

I am interested in Responsible Research and Innovation and have served as member of the NMBU research ethics committee since 2014 and the National Research Ethics Committees of Norway since 2017. From August 2022 I lead the NMBU Research Ethics Forum. I have committed to the Philosophers for Sustainability pledge.
