    I'm an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Discipline at Northeastern University London and the Research Head for the cluster 'Reimagining Higher Education in the Age of AI'. I'm also a UCU rep at the university as well as a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science at the London School of Economics. Additionally, I dabble in coding and have developed The Logic Calculator.

    My main area of expertise is the philosophy of science, particularly the scientific realism debate, but I also have active research interests in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of artificial intelligence and meta-philosophy. Together with various colleagues, I edited a number of special issues on themes like the underdetermination of theory by evidence, the role and value of novel predictions in confirmation, the nature of unification and coherence and the extent to which observation is theory-laden. I have also co-edited the European Philosophy of Science Association 2013 Conference Proceedings (Springer 2015).

    I'm currently working on various projects, including how to model analogical reasoning, a neuro-symbolic approach to automating scientific discovery, the epistemology of machine learning, a visual representation of logical inferences, a variant of the resolution principle in automated theorem proving, and pedagogical experiments on conditional reasoning.

    Finally, I'm co-organising (with Alice Helliwell, Julia Hofweber, Arthur M. Langer and Sara Raimondi) a conference on The Future of the Humanities: Reflective Practices in the Age of AI that will take place May 3rd and 4th 2024 at Northeastern University London.
