Vanessa Seifert

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Philosophy Department of the University of Bristol, working for the European Research Council Project ‘The Metaphysical Unity of Science’ (grant no. 771509). I am interested in examining standard issues of the philosophy of science, from the novel and relatively unexplored perspective of chemistry. Currently, I work on the relation between chemistry and quantum mechanics and explore the implications of this relation on chemical ontology. My undergraduate studies were in Chemical Engineering (National Technical University of Athens). I have an MSc in Philosophy of Science (LSE) and I recently completed my PhD in Philosophy (University of Bristol).
