Dr. Shech is interested in philosophy of physics, philosophy of science, philosophy of mathematics, and history of philosophy, as well as issues in biomedical and environmental ethics. His work primarily concerns the nature and role of idealizations and representations in the sciences and, more specifically, in condensed matter physics.

My research interest include general philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, and philosophy of mathematics and statistics, and I also have a budding interest philosophy of artificial intelligence and machines learning, as well as aesthetics and the philosophy of art.

Current Projects Research:

  • Project on Infinite Idealization in Physics
  • Science and Art: Representation, Fictions, and the Imagination
  • Mathematical Explanation, Indispensability, and Nominalism
