Zina B. Ward

I am a doctoral candidate in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh. My current research explores individual differences in cognitive science (see Research). I have other ongoing projects on values in science and moral psychology. I am also a member of the graduate training program run by the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, an interdisciplinary research center between the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University.

Before coming to Pittsburgh, I completed MPhils in Philosophy and in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. My time in Cambridge was funded by a Herchel Smith Fellowship. Before that, I received my BA from Williams College, where I majored in Economics and Philosophy with a concentration in Cognitive Science.
