Sina Fazelpour is an assistant professor of philosophy and computer science at Northeastern University. Sina studies the social impacts and governance of data-driven and artificial intelligence technologies, with a focus on justice, diversity, and reliability in sociotechnical, human-AI systems. He also works on understanding the concepts and consequences of diversity in social groups and networks. To address these issues, he draws on analytical tools of philosophy, methods of cognitive science, and formal techniques of agent-based simulation and machine learning. His articles on these and other areas have appeared in Philosophy of Science, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Synthese, European Journal for Philosophy of Science, Cognition, and more.
