F. Boem PhD (Federico)


About Me

I am a philosopher of science. My research interests include philosophy of biology and biomedicine (including technological and methodological aspects), the epistemology of biological knowledge, the relationship between science and democracy, and the philosophy of scientific communication.
I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Twente (NL), in the European project ERC-Syn-2020 ( aka NanoBubbles) which aims to provide new insights on how, when, and why science fails to correct itself.
