“The Importance of Expert Knowledge in Big Data and Machine Learning” (co-authored with J.U. Hansen) Synthese 201, 35 (open access)

Based on an analysis of big data and machine learning methods in two case studies—skin cancer detection and protein folding—we show that expert knowledge is essential and inherent in the application of these methods. Drawing on this analysis, we establish a classification of the different kinds of expert knowledge that are involved in the application of big data and machine learning in scientific contexts.


“Cognitive structuralism. Explaining the Regularity of the Natural Numbers Progression“ The Review of Philosophy and Psychology (open access)

I propose a new type of position within the core cognition paradigm, inspired by structuralism in the philosophy of mathematics. I call it „cognitive structuralism”. I explore the possibility of using the innate sensitivity to syncopation (beat induction) to explain the structural properties of the natural number progression.


“Can Church’s Thesis be Viewed as a Carnapian Explication?”, Synthese 2021 (open access)

I focus on the question of whether Church’s thesis can be seen as an explication in the precise Carnapian sense. Most importantly, I address an additional constraint that Carnap puts on the explicative power of axiomatic systems—an axiomatisation explicates when it is clear which mathematical entities form the theory’s intended model—and that implicitly applies to axiomatisations of recursion theory used in Church’s account of computability.
