Philippe Verreault-Julien

Postdoctoral Researcher

London School of Economics and Political Science

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CPNSS), London School of Economics and Political Science. I carry out a project funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture (FRQSC) on the methodological differences between the empirical sciences and philosophy.

My research primarily concerns the epistemology of scientific modelling, understanding, and explanation.
