I am passionate about research that combines philosophy and psychology and provides knowledge about socially relevant topics such as racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination. I have done research on implicit bias (such as implicit prejudices and stereotypes), emotions, moral psychology, aesthetic experiences, and various interactions between these topics. In current and future research, I focus on bias in AI applications.
My research thus focuses on philosophy of cognitive science (including AI) & mind, emotion theory, and aesthetics.
