Thank you for visiting my site.
I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Data Ethics at the University of Oregon. I research the epistemic and ethical implications of the design, development and deployment of computational methods and technologies in science and society.
You can find some of my publications on the following philosophical issues related to computational methods and data science (starting from most recent) here:
- On why we shouldn’t let deep neural networks (or pigeons) replace medical professionals in clinical settings. (Forthcoming in Bioethics)
- On understanding computer simulations as scientific instruments.
- On health, autonomy and AI diagnosis from social media content/data analysis (with Nicolae Morar).
- On the challenges that opaque computational methods such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data pose to democratic processes.
- On how not to justify our ubiquitous reliance and trust on computer simulations for scientific inquiry (with John Symons).
- On the epistemic implications of big data in science (with John Symons)
