My research interests include language, mind, and rationality, as well as AI, robots, and social & institutional ontology. My teaching experience has included jurisprudence, philosophy of mind, Kant, political philosophy, the philosophy of science and technology, among others. I work with the European Research Council and Directorate General of Research and Technology as an ethics evaluator for European research projects and sometimes in other roles.
