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 the kinds of reasons and values relevant to inquiry, and in the attitude it is rational to have toward one's favored theory during inquiry. 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 beyond evidence, which I call inquisitive reasons.
