Caspar Jacobs

  • Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of HPS. My main research areas are the philosophy of physics and the metaphysics of science. The topic of my doctoral dissertation is the interpretation of symmetry-related models, in particular in the context of gauge theories. Currently, I am also interested in the philosophy of quantities and units.  

In addition, I have a research interest in Early Modern history and philosophy of science, having worked previously on Du Châtelet's views on space.
