I am a researcher of philosophy and PI for the project Causation, Complexity and Evidence in Health Sciences (CauseHealth), financed by FRIPRO, Research Council of Norway. My specialisation is causation, in particular on the relation between philosophical theory and scientific methodology and practice. I teach Examen Philosophicum in English and the module Causation in Science. I also run the PhilSci forum and the Philosophy Café. I use Twitter for networking and blog about my research at Rani blogs about causation etc.

ProjectsCausation is central to our understanding of human health and illness. Medical explanation, prediction and intervention are all premised on the reality of causation. CauseHealth bring together philosophers, medical researchers and practitioners to address a major challenge: how to understand causation in health sciences.Causation is central to our understanding of how matter, life, minds and society works. This collaborative and interdisciplinary project brings together academics from a range of backgrounds to consider the general theory of causation in relation to their own specialisms.
