  • Profile

    Sebastian De Haro

    Assistant Professor (Universitair Docent) in Philosophy of Science at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation and the Institute of Physics of the University of Amsterdam. I am also a member of the Vossius Center for the History of Humanities and Sciences.

    During the winter of 2018-2019, I was a visiting fellow in philosophy at the Black Hole Initiative, Harvard University, through invitation by Peter Galison.

    I did my PhD in theoretical physics in 2001 under Gerard 't Hooft (Nobel Prize in Physics 1999). After that, I was a postdoc in theoretical physics at the University of California, Los Angeles (2001-2003), at the Max-Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam (2003-2006), and at King's College, London (2006-2008). Before joining the Faculty of Science, I was a lecturer at the Amsterdam University College, University of Amsterdam (2009-2020).

    I did my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge, under Jeremy Butterfield, as the Tarner student in Philosophy of Science and History of Ideas (2015-2020) at Trinity College, Cambridge
