Henrik Zinkernagel has graduated from Theoretical Physics and has a PhD in Philosophy of Science. He is an Associate Professor-tenured at the Department of Philosophy I of the University of Granada.

Areas of research

His research has mainly focused on the history and philosophy of Cosmology and the philosophy of quantum mechanics (in particular, on Niels Borh’s perspective on the subject). In recent years, his research has focused on the aesthetic aspects of science and the philosophy of education and which has been reinforced by his teaching experience at university with students of Art, History of Art, Philosophy and Sciences.
