I am a philosopher of science specialized in biology with a background in philosophy as well as molecular biology. My research is focused on the relationships between structure and function, from molecules to higher levels of organization. I am investigating the diversity of structural patterns and regulatory motifs and how they can be used to explain different functional features of biological systems, using conceptual approaches close to scientific practice. In addition, I am very interested in the philosophy of aging, cancer, systems biology, synthetic biology, protein science, game theory, and the history of molecular biology. Before joining the Department of Philosophy in Vienna as a University Assistant/Postdoc, I was a Postdoc in the Conceptual Biology & Medicine Group and Thomas Pradeu’s ERC project “Immunity, Development and the Microbiota (IDEM): Understanding the Continuous Construction of Biological Identity” in Bordeaux.
