Ann-Sophie Barwich is a philosopher and historian of science, with a specialization in biology and chemistry. Her research examines the current and past developments in olfactory research and the epistemic, empirical, and social factors that define ongoing science in laboratories studying olfaction. She has recently completed a book exploring the sense of smell as a model for studying neuroscience. Ann received her PhD from the Center for the Study of Life Sciences (Egenis) at the University of Exeter before taking on a postdoctoral fellowship at the Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research. Ann completed the PSSN program in 2018 and is currently an assistant professor in the Cognitive Science Program and the Department of History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine at the University of Indiana Bloomington.
