I'm a PhD candidate and instructor of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I maintain a broad interest in general philosophy of science and in philosophy of mathematized sciences, in particular in philosophy of physics. My dissertation research focuses on the relationship between initial value indeterminism and essential idealization with a special emphasis on well- and ill-posed problems in physics. My advisors are John Earman and John Norton. I have science background in physics (MSc), in theoretical economics (BSc and MSc), and in mathematical population genetics. I spent three years (2000-2003) at Eötvös University studying philosophy before joining Pitt where, besides pursuing my studies in HPS, I completed a secondary MA in the Department of Philosophy. I love to shock my students with all the weirdness hiding behind the curtains of science, and to show them that by carefully pulling the curtains away we can fruitfully address deep philosophical problems. With enough persistence, most of the time. I love adventures. I don't think I will ever get bored exploring new territories of science and philosophy, and I'm grateful that HPS allows me excursions into a wide variety of fields. I love to tackle new problems and to share puzzles with others. I'm one of those lucky guys whose job is also his main hobby. Although I keep irking patient friends with my latest crazes I don't spend time exclusively with work. You may find some other activities I like to pursue on these pages. If you have any questions about the Pitt experience or about something else, don't hesitate to contact me!
