My research is generally directed in three directions:

  • making good decisions (automated reasoning, multiple-criteria decision-making, preference and priorities, and rule-based/symbolic AI)
  • foundational issues (philosophical issues around possible failure modes of AI, ethics, meaning, and philosophy of language and of the mind) and
  • the theory behind practical applications (building ethical ML for healthcare, ethical frameworks for automated medical decision-making).
