Zvonimir Anić (Institute of Philosophy, Zagreb) has joined the ThUMB project as a doctoral researcher.

Zvonimir will engage in: 1) elucidating the relation between explanation, prediction, and causal inference in the biological and biomedical sciences; 2) examining the relation between mechanisms and models of mechanism in thinking about mechanisms of disease; and 3) providing normative constraints on the use of mechanistic reasoning in the biomedical sciences for the purposes of design, implementation, and prediction of medical interventions.
