Thomas Boyer-Kassem is currently an AXA post-doc fellow at the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and Philosophy of Science.

His research interests lie in philosophy of science, epistemology and decision theory. The topics he publishes on, include scientific collaborations, scientists’ publications strategies, the interpretations of quantum mechanics, computer simulations, models of human decision-making. Methodologically, I often use conceptual analysis and formal methods (mathematical models, solved analytically or by simulations).

Thomas has been educated in France both in science ( entered 2nd at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan in 2003 and awarded the highest French teaching certification in Physics in 2006) and in philosophy (Master in 2008, PhD in 2011 at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne).

After his PhD, T. Boyer-Kassem has worked in Lille and Nancy (France), as a post-doc and as a temporary assistant professor.
