The Freedom Center Welcomes Thony Gillies

Aug. 22, 2021

The Freedom Center is delighted to announce that Anthony (Thony) Gillies (PhD 2001, Arizona - bear down) has joined as a research faculty member in the Center and as the Sherwin Scott Professor of Philosophy. Thony works on stuff about how rational(ish) but imperfectly informed agents communicate about and operate in an unpredictable world full of other agents. This cross-cuts topics in formal semantics, logic, formal epistemology, and various parts of the decision sciences. 

Prior to returning to UArizona, Thony was a member of the philosophy department at Rutgers for 11 years and has held appointments at the University of Michigan, Harvard University, and the University of Texas at Austin. 

Other tidbits: he runs, has an espresso and pizza problem, and his Erdös number ≤ 5.
