Bio/Description

David Kinney is interested in both descriptive and normative aspects of learning, explanation, causal reasoning and inference, and decision making, primarily in scientific contexts but also in the lives of non-scientist agents. Increasingly, he is interested in how attitudes towards risk and uncertainty affect agents' socially-relevant decisions and epistemic states. In addition, he has broad interests in formal epistemology and philosophy of probability. He has a PhD in Philosophy from the London School of Economics and was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the Santa Fe Institute.
