Research

Thank you for your interest in my research. In the last decade I focused my work on philosophy of science and on philosophical aspects of computational science.

In philosophy of science I work and publish on scientific unification, on the foundational aspects of numerical tools used in scientific discovery, on mechanisms, and on scientific realism. I am interested in scientific aspects of big data analytics and pattern recognition. I also have a special interest in philosophy of physics, in theoretical aspects of quantum gravity with an emphasis on string dualities. My PhD thesis at UC San Diego was on spacetime theories, more specifically on the unifying Kaluza-Klein model of electromagnetism and gravitation.

In the last several years I have done research and I have published on the philosophical aspects of computational methods. I publish on the epistemology of computer simulations in science with a special emphasis on the role of machine learning and evolutionary computation as a new tool of discovering mechanisms, laws of nature and symmetries.

I am working in the relatively new area of ‘machine ethics,’ which deals with the ethical and epistemological implications of artificial intelligence and artificial morality. I am interested in artificial moral cognition and the theoretical basis of creating artificial agency through machine learning.

In metaphysics I am interested in time, ontological pluralism, and possible worlds semantics. I also have interest in the history of philosophy and especially in Aristotle, Neoplatonism, Leibniz, and A.N. Whitehead.
