Grants & Awards

In February 2020 I was awarded a Marie-Sklodowksa-Curie Individual Fellowship from the European Commission to pursue a research project on the Philosophy of Automation at the University of Vienna. The project "How Artifacts Acquire Agency: Towards a Philosophy of Automation" is scheduled to begin in June 2021 and will be supervised by Prof. Marck Coeckelbergh.

In 2017 I was awarded the Charles Schmitt Prize from the International Society for Intellectual History (ISIH) for my article "Enchanting Automata: Wilkins and the Wonder of Workmanship". The prize is awarded annually for the best essay by a doctoral student or recent postdoc for an essay in any area of intellectual history, broadly construed, from 1500 to the present, including the historiography of intellectual history

In 2015 & 2016 I was awarded grants by the Meltzer Fund for travel expenses to attend and present my research at a variety of international conferences.
