LSE Philosophy Assistant Professor Ali Boyle is one of the newly selected CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars.

This year, 10 emerging research leaders will join the CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars programme cohort 2024-2026, generously supported by the Azrieli Foundation. This ambitious next-generation initiative provides two years of unrestricted funding to talented researchers tackling important and pressing questions facing science and humanity.

The recruitment process for the latest cohort generated 285 eligible applications from 38 countries. The 10 researchers who were selected will join four CIFAR programmes: CIFAR MacMillan Multiscale Human, Future Flourishing, Gravity & the Extreme Universe and Humanity’s Urban Future.

Ali Boyle is part of the ‘Future Flourishing’ programme, where she will investigate the mind in nonhumans, including animals and AI systems, with the goal of understanding the diverse forms of memory that exist across species.
