Karen Crowther is visiting the Science Studies Colloquium Series. Crowther is Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas at the University of Oslo. She specializes in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of physics. Crowther is interested in the nature of fundamental physical theories, as well as the idea of emergent physics, and the relationship between these different `levels’ of description. Much of her research has focused on effective field theory, spacetime and quantum gravity. Crowther's current project explores the roles of principles and other non-empirical guides to scientific theory construction and evaluation. In particular, she is looking at the different non-empirical guides involved in the search for quantum gravity. Before coming to Oslo, Crowther was a postdoc at the University of Geneva and University of Pittsburgh. She received her PhD from the University of Sydney.
