NICK ZAUTRA (Host)

 

Nick is a doctoral student pursuing a Joint Ph.D. in History and Philosophy of Science and Cognitive Science at Indiana University Bloomington. Nick completed his M.A. (Applied Ethics and the Professions: Biomedical and Health Ethics) and my B.A. (Hons.) (Psychology) from Arizona State University.

Nick is a philosopher of science with broad and interdisciplinary research interests. In addition to general philosophy of science issues (e.g., explanation, models, values in science), I have special interests in philosophy of science issues as they arise in psychiatry and the cognitive sciences more generally. I also have research interests in 4E approaches to cognition (embodied, embedded, enactive, and extended), empirical approaches to philosophy of mind, computational approaches in the history and philosophy of science, and medical ethics. 

More generally, Nick is someone who is interested in philosophy and the sciences and coming to understand how folks from both disciplines, and those at the intersection of those disciplines, work together.
