Stefano Furlan

Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Apr 2022-Jan 2025)

After classical studies and a degree in physics, Stefano Furlan specialized in theoretical physics with specific focus on the notion of minimal length in nature and its interplay with quantization in the context of quantum gravity. In order to integrate his styles of thought and competences, he is currently pursuing a PhD at Geneva University under the supervision of Christian Wüthrich and the co-supervision, in Berlin, of Alexander Blum, whose group (Historical Epistemology of the Final Theory Program) he joined in April 2019 to investigate issues at the intersections of physics, mathematics, and history and philosophy of science, with reference to analogical and visual practices in such domains.
