Marina DiMarco

My research interests include the history and philosophy of molecular biology and medicine. In particular, I am curious about the nature and authority of scientific explanations of human health and behavior. I have a strong interest in feminist philosophy of science, especially with respect to epistemic injustice, the politics of  language and metaphor in biology and medicine, and more general social epistemology of science. Before coming to Pitt, I studied Molecular Biology and Philosophy at Middlebury College, and worked at the Mental Health Center of Denver.
