Research

My core research areas are in philosophy of science, cognitive science, and politics and ethics of science and technology (particularly artificial intelligence). I’m currently focusing on two research projects: the first project involves developing a framework for understanding, evaluating, and improving algorithm-based decision-making in an ethical manner. The second project examines group decision-making (and individual decision-making in group settings). Here, I am particularly interested in how diversity impacts group dynamics and decision-making. In addition to these two core projects, I have worked and continue to work on counterfactual explanation, attention, and cognitive modeling.
