About Me

Summary

I am an academic, author and theoretical particle physics student. Currently on the long road to a PhD, my interest in theoretical particle physics is also strengthened by my passion for mathematical physics. Since I was young I’ve had an interest in physics more broadly, and that includes an ongoing and deep-seated enthusiasm for astrophysics, especially theoretical astrophysics. In general, I am very much involved in and engaged with science and mathematics, studying both widely and intensely. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring various mathematical concepts, proofs, and first principles, as well as studying and writing in many other specialist fields across the natural and social sciences.

During my youthful reading, well before my formal pursuit of a PhD in theoretical physics, I also heavily focused on philosophy, especially philosophy of science (but expanded to almost every region of philosophical space). One of my primary areas of focus is at the intersection of human society, human behaviour, epistemology and ethics. To date I have published ~100 academic articles across a variety of specialisms, from history and anthropology to psychology, epistemology and philosophy of science. In recognition of my studies I’ve been offered opportunities to lecture at university and was once awarded a teaching-scholar position in philosophy of science at the Institute for Transnational Studies. In 2016, as a result of my developing a cross-disciplinary research programme in the area of human and social sciences, I had a book published by Palgrave Macmillan titled Society and Social Pathology: A Framework for Progress (2017). It is a critical book very much belonging to the enlightenment tradition, with particular emphasis in the area of social psychology.

My main focus, however, is on school and on my pursuit of a PhD in theoretical particle physics.

I have a high-functioning form of Asperger’s. With this, I experience many difficulties, some of which I am still learning about. I speak two languages, English and Swedish. I also plan to learn German or maybe Spanish when time permits.

This website and my different blogs were created as a space for me to document some of my interests and studies, as well as document my scholarship in a range of areas. The content is a mixture of formal publications and informal essays as well as personal notes, with my new philosophy blog offering a selection of some older writings mixed in with more recent articles. I have written piles and piles of essays and articles over the years on such subjects as epistemology, social theory, history, the enlightenment philosophes, psychology, science and the scope of knowledge, among many other things. My philosophy blog is a space to share some of these works, as and when I see fit to publish them. My physics blog will be the most active, but I also plan to write about mathematics (and maybe even things like computer science and information theory) from time to time.

If you would like to know more about me, I have written an autobiographical essay that among other things describes a bit about my life so far, including personal stories such as the time when I taught myself calculus. It also offers some brief if not rudimentary reflections in relation to my early work and studies. I have also written a rough and admittedly explorative essay on living with Asperger’s, should you find it of interest.
