Current Research

My primary research interest has been focused on questions about the nature of scientific explanation. I have worked on this topic primarily from within the philosophy of science and with an eye towards physics, but I also have interests in how explanations in other fields, such as metaphysics, are related to scientific ones. I would welcome the opportunity to work with PhD students in any of these areas.

I am currently working on a Templeton ACT Fellowship: https://www.templeton.org/grant/lina-jansson-act-fellowship-application
