|Lina grew up in Sweden before moving to the UK to pursue a BA in physics and philosophy at the University of Oxford. After working in London she returned to philosophy and completed her PhD at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.|
|My primary research interest has been focused on questions about the nature of scientific explanations. I have worked on this topic primarily from within the philosophy of physics, but I also have interests in how explanations in other fields, such as metaphysics, are related to scientific ones.|
