I am a doctoral candidate at the IHPST at University of Toronto. Before coming to Toronto, I completed a Ph.D. in mathematics at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, and the Group for Research in Decision Analysis (Gerad) in 2015. Most of my work relates to the philosophy of science, decision theory, and epistemology. I especially like to think about the varieties of scientific explanations in sciences, mathematical explanations in mathematics, and the ways artificial intelligence can explain the reasons for its decisions. I am also interested in (ancient and medieval) Arabic and Persian philosophy. You can find more about me in my personal website: http://kasirzadeh.org/.
