After obtaining his PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 2015, and having worked there as a Lecturer in Philosophy of Science for many years, between 2017-2020 Lukas Verburgt will work on his Veni-project (NWO) 'A New History and Philosophy for the Exact Sciences: The Case of the Second Scientific Revolution'. 

He has held Visiting Fellowships at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin (20140), the Department for History and Philosophy of Science, Cambridge (2017) and the Vossius Center for the History of Humanities and Sciences, Amsterdam (2017). 

He has published widely on the history and philosophy of the exact sciences, especially those of the 19th- and early-20th century. His articles have been published in journals such as Historia MathematicaAnnals of Science and Studies in History and Philosophy of Science.  

He is a member of British Society for the History of Mathematics, the European Society for the History of Science and the Canadian Society for the Philosophy and History of Mathematics, among other organizations, as well as a reviewer for Historia MathematicaStatistical Science and International Studies in the Philosophy of Science
