David Thorstad - Bio

I'm a postdoc at the Global Priorities Institute, Oxford and a junior research fellow at Kellogg College. Beginning Fall 2023, I'll be Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University.

My research sits at the intersection between bounded rationality, inquiry, and value theory.


I want to know how bounded agents should make up their minds about what to do and believe, and how the answers to these questions bear on altruistic decisionmaking and the ethics of emerging technologies.
