    I'm an Associate Professor in the Philosophy Faculty at the New College of the Humanities and a member of the Advisory Board of the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science at the London School of Economics. I also dabble in coding and have developed The Logic Calculator. I'm currently on Sabbatical, visiting the Openproof project at the Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI), Stanford University.

    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 co-PI on a TIER1-funded project that seeks to experimentally study: (i) the way people learn logical reasoning skills, (ii) how their learning strategies evolve over time and (iii) the optimal way to acquire such skills. The project deploys machine-learning to identify patterns of learning behaviour as well as to intelligently adapt content delivery.
