I have a background in economics and philosophy of science. Now I am working on my PhD project on information avoidance.
Areas of interest:
information avoidance, such theories of rationality, self-deception, and epistemology.
I am working on:
This is well documented in empirical sciences, and I am providing an new account through the lens of philosophy.
Information avoidance certainly seems very self-deceptive, but it doesn’t fit in well with existing literature of self deception. I am exploring the nuance between different theories, and working towards a theory that also captures key elements of information avoidance.
I have worked on:
VR experiments, online haptic experiments, and many new methods for online experiments.
