- Research interests: The development of numeracy in the late medieval and early modern periods, with particular focus on the mathematical learning outside the university sphere.
- About Cheryl: I was a high school mathematics teacher for over 20 years and for the last 10 have been a university lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University teaching mathematics and its pedagogy to those training to become middle and high school mathematics teachers. Having undertaken the MA in history for fun, I realised that there was little research into how people developed their basic numeracy skills. In doing so I am linking all three of my interests - mathematics, pedagogy and history.

- Education: 2013 Bielefeld University, Germany, B.A. History and Chemistry
- Research interests: History of chemistry, medicine, and pharmacy in the 19th and 20th centuries, gender in science,
history and philosophy of scientific expertise
- About Marcus: I have studied history and chemistry and I am currently studying in an M.A. program in History, Philosophy, and Sociology at Bielefeld University, Germany. Since I am most interested in the interconnections between science and medicine and the other parts of society in history, my main focus lies on the history and philosophy of public expertise, especially on chemical and medical expertise. I am also interested in the role of science in shaping and reproducing social differences, for example gender differences.

- Education: 2013 B.A. in Sociology (major subject) and Philosophy (minor subject) at Bielefeld University in Bielefeld,
Germany. Currently in M.A program in History, Philosophy and Sociology of Science at Bielefeld University
- Research interests: Unintended effects of the pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and which consequences arose concerning society, especially for the health system; the mind-body problem (particularly intentional explanations), epistemology (particularly fundamental problems of epistemology) or theory of cognition (particularly tacit knowledge).
- About Maceo: I awarded my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Philosophy in Bielefeld University. But my purpose to come to Bielefeld University was to study History, Philosophy and Sociology of Science. In the last few years I have been concentrating on sociology and philsophy, and I would consider myself to be an interdisciplinary working sociologist/ philosophist; however, I was always fascinated about the sciences.
- E-mail: Leandro.LageDosSantosGuedes.email@example.com
- Education: Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro BSc., MSc.
- Research Interests: History and philosophy of science, philosophy of astronomy, epistemology
- About Leandro: I am from Brazil, and I am very happy to be a visitor and have this part of my Ph.D. done here at HPS in Notre Dame. I'm an astronomer, received my MSc in extragalactic astrophisics, and decided to turn my formation toward History and Philospphy of Science, in order to understand more about some philosophical aspects of Astronomy and Cosmology. I am particularly interested in realism and in the use of ad-hoc hypotheses in science.

- Education: 2004: MSc in Theoretical Physics (University of Zurich); 2006: Degree in Higher Education in Physics (University of Zurich); 2012: PhD in Philosophy (University of Lausanne)
- Research Interests: Scientific realism, causation, philosophy of quantum physics, philosophy of scientific experimentation.
- About Matthias: I have recently defended my Ph.D. thesis on scientific realism in particle physics at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). I am currently continuing my research on scientific explanation and causality in the context of quantum mechanics, and its relation to explanations in other contexts. I am also interested in ontological issues surrounding quantum field theory.
