alexandergebharterI am a research fellow at the Duesseldorf Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science (DCLPS) at the University of Duesseldorf, Germany, and a member of the DFG funded research unit Inductive Metaphysics (FOR  2495). Before I was part of the DFG funded research unit Causation, Laws, Disposition, Explanation: At the Intersection of Science and Metaphysics (FOR 1063). I obtained my PhD from the University of Duesseldorf and my MA from the University of Salzburg, Austria. My research interests lie in philosophy of science and its intersection with epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of mind. I am especially interested in causation and related topics.

I am editor-in-chief of KRITERION — Journal of Philosophy, an open access journal that is intended as a platform for philosophical discussion within the tradition of analytic philosophy, and treasurer of the German Society for Philosophy of Science (GWP).
