  • Naïd Mubalegh: Nature as a rational space and the economic perspective(s) in evolutionary biology. Rationality in what sense, and at what cost? 4. nov. 2020 14:15

    Naïd Mubalegh is a PhD student in Philosophy of Science (Biology) at the University of Lisbon and the University Paris 1 Sorbonne, and currently a guest researcher at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the University of Oslo. She investigates the relationship between economic theories and the development of evolutionary theory. She is interested, among others, in understanding how certain, often strictly defined, concepts of rationality have been transferred from economics to evolutionary biology. How has an utilitarian research method been so successful in describing and explaining evolutionary processes and biodiversity? What is left outside by such a perspective, and what happens when scientific models from biology influence economics in return?

She is an ordinary member of the Open Science Center at the LudwigMaximilians Universität, Munich, and Visiting Professor at the MCMP, LMU. Her current research interests are focused on philosophy of statistics and scientific inference in research contexts characterised by strategic behaviour. She is developing a "Formal Epistemology of Medicine", with the aim to analyse the complex interaction of methodological, social and regulatory as well as ethical dimensions in medicine. Her scientific interests include: the precautionary principle, evidence hierarchies, causality, and statistical inference in medicine. Her recent papers analyse issues around philosophy of evidence (reliability, bias, reproducibility, coherence) from a Bayesian perspective. Within her ERC Grant she developed a Bayesian framework for the integration of heterogenous items of evidence and higher order evidence for the purpose of causal assessment of drug-induced harm ("E-Synthesis"), in collaboration with Drug Agencies across Europe.
