Further Information

Before joining the MCMP in 2022 I was a Research Fellow at the School of Philosophy of the Australian National University for three years, working with the Humanising Machine Intelligence initiative. I received my PhD in philosophy from Columbia University in 2019, working in formal social epistemology under the direction of Philip Kitcher. Before that, I received Masters and BA in Philosophical Logic from the University of Buenos Aires, where I worked with the Buenos Aires Logic Group.

Research interests

I use formal tools to understand and tackle some of the impact that digital technologies have and will have in the way we organize knowledge in scientific and non-scientific communities. My dissertation focused on how to best represent the consensus and (network) dynamic of a social group given the attitude of its individuals, be them opinions or judgments of sympathy. I am now working on social media network analysis on controversial topics, and I am also interested in the emergent field of philosophy of data science, and in the ethics of autonomous decision making.
