I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Groningen. Before coming to Groningen, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the project "Making Scientific Inferences More Objective" (Tilburg University and the University of Turin.)
I obtained my Ph.D. in the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology program, Department of Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis (Summer 2016). I studied Philosophy (B.A.) and Computer Science (B.Sc, MS.c.) at University of Los Andes.
My research falls in the domains of philosophy of science, social epistemology, and philosophy of cognitive science. I work primarily on understanding how the social organization of research activities affects their epistemic outcomes. My current focus is the replicability crisis in the sciences. I also have projects on causation and explanation in cognitive science, and knowledge ascriptions. I explore these topics with a pluralistic methodological approach, supporting conceptual analysis with empirical literature, case studies, and computational models.
In case you were wondering, I am not Felipe Romero the boxer.
