Maximilian Rossmann (M.M.)
I am a philosopher (Ph.D.) and chemical engineer (B.Sc.) and work as Post-Doc in Prof. Cyrus Mody's ERC project “NanoBubbles”. Our project seeks to understand why the scientific record is so difficult to correct and how scientists are able to ignore contradictory evidence. The aim is to foster a healthier scientific dialogue in which contradictory evidence can be debated and errors corrected without fear of repercussions. In collaboration with Cyrus Mody and Candida Sanches-Burmeister, I conduct detailed case studies to trace how the promises of nanobiology emerged, were contested, and defy critical claims at conferences, in emerging research networks, and beyond. My particular interests are the role of narratives and the application of digital methods in the field of Science Technology Studies (STS).
Science and Technology Studies (STS)
Technology Assessment (TA)
Imagination, Narratives & Framing
Empirical methods in social sciences (Quantitative, Qualitative, Digital methods)
Maximilian Roßmann studied Chemical Engineering (B.Sc.) at Hochschule Mannheim and Philosophy of Science and Technology (M.A.) at the Technical University in Munich and obtained his doctorate in Philosophy from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. At the Institute of Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS), he researched methods to critically analyze the diffusion & influence of imagined futures on technology development; He worked in highly inter- transdisciplinary projects in the fields of bioeconomy, 3d printing, and nuclear waste management.
