I joined the University of Nottingham in September 2019. I hold a MA and a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Manchester (supervised by Joel Smith, Helen Beebee and Deborah Talmi), a MA in Classics from University College London and a BA in Classics from Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece.
My research is primarily in social ontology, the philosophy of emotion and the philosophy of artificial intelligence. I am interested in the interplay between metaphysical questions on the ontology of mental states/ categories and practical application questions in experimental psychology and artificial intelligence. I am currently working on projects relating to the metaphysics of social kinds, AI and responsibility and the relation between emotion and personal identity.
In 2022/23 I am teaching a 3rd year module in the Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence. I will also be leading seminars in two 1st year modules (Reasoning, Argument and Logic and Gender, Justice and… read more
My current research focuses on the powers of social kinds and the possibility of AI responsibility. I am also currently exploring the concept of vulnerability as a relational construct.
I would be very interested in working with PhD students on the following areas:
1. Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence - e.g. AI responsibility, AI and emotion, and Human/AI Interaction
2. Philosophy of Emotion- e.g. nature of emotion, emotion and identity, vulnerability
3. Social Ontology- e.g. the nature of social kinds, looping effects and powers of social kinds.
If you are interested in these areas and thinking of doing a PhD, drop me an email.
In 2022/23 I am teaching a 3rd year module in the Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence. I will also be leading seminars in two 1st year modules (Reasoning, Argument and Logic and Gender, Justice and Society)
