  • AI Ethics



I completed my PhD in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh in May 2015. Before that, I studied history and biology as an undergraduate at Brown University.

My current research interests lie primarily in moral epistemology, moral psychology, and applied ethics. In particular, I am interested in the implications of biology and psychology for the epistemic status of our moral beliefs. In the course of considering this question, I address topics in epistemology, metaethics, philosophy of cognitive science, and philosophy of biology. Within applied ethics, my main interests are currently in data science ethics, moral enhancement, and ethical AI.
