My research interests

My research interests essentially lie in philosophy of science and in social epistemology. For example, I have been interested in the interpretations of quantum mechanics, in the plurality of explanations in the sciences, or in the publishing andcollaborating strategies in science.

A short biography

Current situation : post-doctoral researcher at theArchives Henri Poincaré in Nancy, France.

I have been educated in France both in science (I entered 2nd at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in 2003 and was awarded the highest French teaching certification in Physics in 2006) and in philosophy (Master in 2008, PhD in 2011 at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne).

At the Universities of Bourgogne, of Lille 1, of Lille 3, of Lorraine, and at the ÉNS de Cachan (in France), I have been teaching philosophy of science, history of science, epistemology, history of philosophy, logic or physics.

I have been a post-doctoral researcher at the Archives Henri Poincaré in Nancy and a visiting researcher at the University of Columbia in New-York.

I have been granted the 2013 "Young Researcher" prize from the Society of Philosophy of Sciences for the article : "Is a bird in the hand worth two in the bush? Or, whether scientists should publish intermediate results"
