Dr. William Ratoff

Assistant Professor (Philosophy)


My research interests lie moral philosophy - especially the ethics of A.I. - and the philosophy of mind and of cognitive science. I joined Trinity in January 2022. Before that I worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Dartmouth College. I received a PhD in Philosophy from Yale University in 2019, an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from University College London in 2011, and a BA in Philosophy from the University of Cambridge in 2010. I am currently working on various papers concerning the ethics of A.I., normative ethics, practical reason, and moral psychology.
