Aidan Lyon



I'm an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Maryland (College Park). I'm also a Humboldt Research Fellow at the Munich Centre for Mathematical Philosophy, a Research Fellow at the Centre of Excellence for Biosecurity Risk Analysis, and a visiting Research Fellow at Philosophy Department at the Australian National University

My research is currently focused on the so-called "wisdom of crowds” effect and the intersection between social epistemology and psychology. As part of that work, I'm developing a crowdsourcing risk analysis platform called CrowdPredict.it to empirically test philosophically motivated ideas for how to improve methods of aggregating subjective forecasts. This work is kindly supported by the Humboldt Foundation.
