I’m currently writing articles on some of the different ways artificially intelligent agents may be said to believe and imagine (such that they may be held partially responsible for their actions), non-epistemic values in AI-assisted research, hypothetical reasoning in chemistry, the metaepistemology of “tools of the imagination” (e.g., thought experiments, models, computer simulations), practical understanding, imagination in chemistry, imagination in space science, story-telling in biology, and counterpossibles in biology.
With PhilSci India and the Forum for Advancing Science and Education through Philosophy, I recently organized three workshops on coronavirus modelling, the social and economics trade-offs of lockdowns, and science communication in the Indian context, as well as an Online Winter School introducing main themes in philosophy of science to students (mainly) in India.
I am serving as Coordinator of the International Steering Committee, as well as the head of the UK national steering committee, and the Swiss national steering committee, for the Paul K. Feyerabend Foundation Worldwide Centennial Celebration in 2024. If you have ideas or want to hear more about this, please contact me.
I’m also extremely excited to be working with the Philosophy in Prisons project as a course developer, using thought experiments and imagination to help teach philosophy, science, and philosophy of science to people incarcerated in the UK.
This year I’ll be at the British Society for Philosophy of Science meeting (in Exeter), the Society for Philosophy of Science in Practice meeting (in Ghent) and the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Science meeting (online). Please say hello!
