Dr Orestis Palermos
I work at the intersection of philosophy of mind and cognitive science, epistemology, philosophy of science and philosophy of technology. I am interested in the idea of philosophical engineering: the way philosophy can impact the design of emerging technologies and socio-technical systems.
I joined Cardiff University as a Lecturer in 2017. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh. My PhD and MSc in Philosophy are from the University of Edinburgh, where I was supervised by Duncan Pritchard, Andy Clark and Mark Sprevak. I also hold a BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens.
