Zina B. Ward

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Florida State University. My primary research areas are general philosophy of science, philosophy of cognitive science, and moral psychology.

At FSU, I am a member of the new Data Science Program and a co-organizer of the Philosophical Psychology Group. I'm also a Contributing Editor to the Brains Blog, where I organize the Cognitive Science of Philosophy Symposium Series.

I received my PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2020. Before that, 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. I received my BA from Williams College, where I majored in Economics and Philosophy with a concentration in Cognitive Science.
