    I am currently a post-doc at the Dept. of Microbiology / Center for AIDS Research at UAB in Birmingham. Alabama "the Beautiful" is an amazing place where Old South and Modern Life meet; it is different from a Stifti's more obvious places of choice, like Boston or Berkley. If you are in the Southeast and/or are interested in science and life in Alabama, contact me. I was a Stifti throughout my student and doctoral thesis years.

    Fields of interest: Philosophy of language, philosophy of science. I have been working on the philosophy of Hilary Putnam, and written a dissertation on his conception of the referential use of language; my advisors are Prof. Habermas (Frankfurt, Northwestern) and Prof. W.K. Essler (Frankfurt). I expect to receive my degree by July 1999. Otherwise I've been working on Natural Kind Terms, Goodman's paradox, problems of underdetermination, the epistemic modalities etc. Other fields of interest are political philosophy and the theories of film, cinema and drama (which I've also written on).

    I've been teaching at Northwestern as an Adjunct Lecturer and Visiting Scholar since 1996/7 and I graduated with a Ph.D. in 1999. Currently I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at Northwestern University

    If anybody plans to study for a certain term at Northwestern or in the Chicago area, she or he is invited to contact me with any questions.

    I am working towards a dual major Ph.D in mathematics and physics in the Beam Theory and Dynamical Systems Group at Michigan State. My research field are numerical methods for the solutions of differential equations and nonlinear optimization problems.

    I will probably complete my degree sometime in 2007, and until then I am ready to assist with questions concerning graduate studies and student life in the US in general and at Michigan State in particular.

    Currently, I am a resident in Ophthalmology at Montefiore Medical Center of Albert Einstein College of Medicine. I did two postdoc research fellowships, one at Columbia University (see my homepage) and one at the Rose Kennedy Center of Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Within the limitations of a full time residency I work with both labs and will be happy to assist if you are looking for an entry into ophthalmic research in either institution.

    Waterloo is 100km West of Toronto, at the same latitude as Florence, Italy. The Faculty of Mathematics at Waterloo is one of the largest world-wide and attracts some of the best students in North America. Since recently, Waterloo is fast becoming one of the major international centres for Mathematical Physics, helped by the founding in 2001 of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (www.perimeterinstitute.ca) with a private endowment of more than 120 Mio$.

    I occasionally accept new graduate students and I offer funding to those who are accepted. There are also opportunities for 4-month summer research studentships.

    Research areas:

  • The physics of information
  • Cosmology
  • Quantum gravity
