Personal profile


Since January 2022, I am a tenure-track assistant professor (Chancellor’s Fellow) in the philosophy department and the Edinburgh’s Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh, where I am a core faculty member at the Centre for Technomoral Futures. Prior to this, I was a visiting research scientist at Google DeepMind in London and a postdoctoral research fellow for the Humanizing Machine Intelligence Grand Challenge at the Australian National University. I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal. 

My research in a nutshell

How do we apply mathematical and computational tools to understand the world and ourselves? Conversely, how do computational technologies impact our thinking and lives? And how can we influence the formation of technological ecosystems for a better and more just world?

My research concerns the factual and normative aspects of mathematical and computational reasoning in drawing inferences about the world. I am committed to a meaningful integration of philosophy and ethics with engineering, computer science, and policy making. I collaborate with public and private institutions as an advisor and engage in public outreach.
