Lena Kästner


I am a post-doctoral researcher in philosophy at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain. I am working primarily in philosophy of science and philosophy of mind; my background is in cognitive science, especially cognitive neuroscience.

In summer 2009, I graduated from University of Osnabrück, Germany with a BSc. in Cognitive Science. From Osnabrück I moved to University College London (UCL) to get join their Cognitive Neuroscience program. During my time in London, I worked at the Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL) on a project investigating the neural basis of sign language processing in the human brain. I graduated from UCL in October 2010 with an MSc. in Cognitive Neuroscience. Before coming to Berlin in spring 2014, I did my PhD in philosophy at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. My dissertation is on scientific explanations in cognitive neuroscience. Part of my project was to develop a system of experiment classification.
