Stefania Ruzsits Jha is a research fellow at the Boston University Center for Philosophy and History of Science, completing her investigation of Eugene Wigner's claim that his epistemology of quantum physics was influenced by Michael Polanyi's epistemology of tacit knowing. Previously she was research associate at Harvard University's Philosophy of Education Research Center, where she participated in research projects for the Mandel Institute of Jerusalem. Her research interests are in scientific innovation and the philosophy of mind in the context of history of science.
