I have research interests in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and the ethics of AI. As part of the Experiential AI program at Northeastern, I will be working with Prof. Tina Eliassi-Rad on ethics and artificial intelligence. We are currently working on a project concerning fairness in social networks.
My research in epistemology and philosophy of mind concerns inquiry and intellectual virtue. For instance, I am interested in what kinds of reasons and values researchers should be sensitive to during inquiry, and in the kinds of attitudes it is rational for researchers to have to their theories. I have argued that it is often irrational to believe one's favored theory; instead, the appropriate attitude is one that I call endorsement. This attitude is rationally sensitive to epistemic considerations that go beyond evidence. I call these considerations inquisitive reasons.
