Lisa Miracchi

Lisa Miracchi is an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department, working on mainly on foundational issues concerning intelligence and its scientific study, as well as issues in epistemology. She argues for a generative methodology in cognitive science and AI research, and an achievement-first, competence-based theory of the mind. She argues that feminism, anti-racism, and social justice concerns need to be integrated into even the most abstract scientific and philosophical theorizing. Additionally, she has interests in the epistemology of sexual orientation.  In addition to serving on the Executive Board of GSWS/APC, she is affiliated faculty with MindCORE, a member of the LGBTQ Faculty Diversity Working Group, the Wellness Advisor for the Philosophy Department, and an SAS Faculty Wellness Partner for Graduate Students.
