Phillip Hintikka Kieval

Philosopher of Science. University of Cambridge.


Free School Lane

Cambridge, CB2 3RH,

United Kingdom

I am a PhD student in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge where I am generously funded by the Gates Cambridge Scholarship.

In addition to my PhD, I also serve as a Student Fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligece.

My current research broadly concerns the epistemological and moral significance of machine learning in science and public decision-making. Tackling these issues leads me to confront fundamental questions concerning non-epistemic values in science, the epistemology of scientific practice, epistemic virtues, pluralism, and pragmatism. I have other projects in the philosophy of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, general philosophy of science, epistemology, ethics and political philosophy.

Before Cambridge I was a student at the University of Houston where I earned my BA and MA in Philosophy.

I share my life with my brilliant wife and our cat Winston.
