We’re pleased to welcome Ali Boyle to the Department, who joins us in September as a new Assistant Professor.

Ali Boyle is a philosopher of science, specialising in comparative cognitive science – the science of nonhuman minds, from animals to artificial agents. She also works in the philosophy of biology, where she is interested in how to count organisms in tricky cases like conjoined twinning, parasitism and pregnancy.

Ali received her BA, MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge, before becoming a Research Fellow at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. Ali is currently a Senior Research Fellow in Kinds of Intelligence at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence in Cambridge, where she leads the Atlas of Intelligences project.

From September Ali will teach on our Mind and Metaphysics Undergraduate course.

We look forward to welcoming Ali to the Department as a new Assistant Professor!
