Philosopher with an initial background in physics and engineering, I work at the Institute of Philosophy and the Oeschger Center for Climate Change Research, University of Bern, in Switzerland. I am part of The epistemology of climate change research project.
My research stands in philosophy of science, feminist philosophy and social epistemology. I first specialised in the epistemological questions relative to scientific representations, including mathematical models, computer simulations and visual representations. I dedicate for several years my research to climate science and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In particular, I am interested in the treatment and communication of climate uncertainties, the influence of socioeconomic values in knowledge production, or the production of usable expertise for policy-making.
