Welcome, and thanks for visiting! Frederik Herzberg


Frederik S. Herzberg teaches part-time as a titular professor at Bielefeld University's Center for Mathematical Economics (IMW) and Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies of Science (I2SoS); in addition, he is an External Member of the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP). His principal occupation is as a commercial school teacher for mathematics and business administration.

Herzberg's research has been concerned primarily with various applications of probabiliy theory and mathematical logic, both within mathematics and also in other disciplines such as (formal) epistemology, theoretical statistics and economic theory. His recent research has focussed mainly on (i) Bayesianism in statistics and the philosophy of science and (ii) mathematics education involving infinitesimal analysis.

Biography in brief

Having obtained doctorates in theoretical mathematics (University of Bonn, 2005) and in mathematical finance (University of Oxford, 2006), Frederik Herzberg became in 2007 assistant professor at Bielefeld University's Center for Mathematical Economics, where he earned an Habilitation in Economic Theory (higher doctorate equiv., 2011). Visiting fellowships brought him to the Mathematics Departments of the University of California, Berkeley (2008) and Princeton University (2009/10) – and also to the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (2012/13), where he prepared for his Habilitation in Philosophy (University of Munich, 2017). His practical work experience includes two years as a Program Officer with the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (2015–2017).
