I am a physician ( U Hamburg '91), epidemiologist (S.M., Harvard U '97), and philosopher (Ph.D., U Johannesburg, '19). I am interested in all things causation, in particular in phil of epidemiology and medicine. Other topics of interest are phil of mind and language. I have published extensively on perinatal brain damage causation and currently work on a third book on the metaphysics of causation and mechanism in medicine, epidemiology, and the biosciences. My previous books are "Causation in Population Health Informatics and Data Science" (with Ben Smart, Springer 2018) and "Etiological Explanations" (CRC Press, 2020).
