Silvia de Bianchi

After receiving my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, I worked as post-doc in UK (University College London), Germany (Siegen University and TU Dortmund) and France (ENS Paris). In 2014 I moved to Barcelona and worked as Marie Curie Fellow at the Centre for the History of Science of the UAB. In 2017, I joined the Department of Philosophy as Ramón y Cajal Fellow. My research interests cover epistemological questions emerging in Immanuel Kant’s philosophy and natural science, as well as in Hermann Weyl’s scientific and philosophical works. I am interested in developing methodologies that integrate the history and philosophy of science and in exploring how models work in scientific practice.
