Researcher biography

I am Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. I was educated at the University of Edinburgh, Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, the University of California at Berkeley (as a Fulbright-Hays Scholar), and the University of Cambridge (as an Andrew Carnegie Scholar). I have held various visiting scholarships/fellowships/professorships, including at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University, Georgetown University, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. In 2000 Jack Copeland and I founded the online Turing Archive for the History of Computing, which has received the Encyclopedia Britannica Internet Guide Award for Excellence and the Scientific American Sci/Tech Award. We received a Marsden Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand for research into the philosophical foundations of cognitive and computer science.
