I study the intersection between history, philosophy, and sociology of mathematics. I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellow in the STS program at MIT, and I have a Ph.D. in history and philosophy of science from Tel Aviv University.

My dissertation explored the implications of unsuccessful revolutions attempts in the history of mathematics on recent philosophical approaches to paradigm shifts and vice versa - how current theories of scientific transformations can shed new light on what is commonly addressed as an ‘unsuccessful attempt’ to transform the foundations of mathematics. My post-doctoral research project, Truth, Knowledge, and Objectivity, examines how, to which extent, and if at all, mathematical objects are created, shaped, or affected by social factors. Historically, I am interested in specifying how rejected but high-profile theories contribute to and impact mainstream discussions. Normatively, I am interested in the interactions between individual scientists and the scientific community, the establishment of scientific norms, and the development of social constructs. 

Another project I am working on is The Social Triangle, which combines philosophy of science with cultural evolution studies to develop a new conceptual framework for understanding individuals' attitudes toward social norms. The project zooms in on three core concepts in human behavior: social identity, social norms, and human groups. It focuses on processes of internalization of social norms and of social identity in an attempt to understand how such processes affect people’s identification with their groups and their decision to join, stay, or leave social groups.
