Alessandra Melas

Postdoctoral fellow, University of Sassari, Sardinia, Italy.
My research interests focus on Metaphysics of Science and Philosophy of Physics, with particular interest in causation, causal models, and chance. My most recent publication “Absolute Coincidences and Salmon's Interactive Fork Model” appeared in 2015 in "New Advances in Causation, Agency and Moral Responsibility". I am currently working on coincidences and their relationship with causation and other notions of chance.
