Research Interests

Chiara Lisciandra's research interests are in philosophy of science, economic methodology, and social philosophy. She works on the emergence and development of norms in society, both theoretically and empirically. Next to this, her research deals with models, explanations, and norms in science. In particular, she is interested in domain-specific explanatory norms and how they affect the transfer of models across domains.
