Hi, I’m Dustin. I am a mathematical physicist turned philosopher of physics. I am currently a Feodor Lynen Research Fellow at the Université de Lausanne (UNIL) in Switzerland.
My main research interests are in foundations of quantum mechanics, philosophy of science and the ontology of physics.
My other interests and areas of expertise include: electrodynamics quantum and classical, probability and foundations of statistical mechanics, philosophy of space and time and metaphysics.
I was born in Offenbach am Main, Germany, studied physics and mathematics at the LMU Munich – with a great year abroad at the McGill University in Montreal – and received my PhD in mathematics in 2015, working on many particle systems and the derivation of mean field equations.
I strongly believe that there is truth, beauty and meaning in the universe and that physics, philosophy and mathematics can bring us closer to them.
