Andrew Roberts

Andrew is a postdoctoral research fellow in the philosophy department at Macquarie University. His work focuses on the concept of “function” in the context of both synthetic and non-synthetic biology. Having recently completed a PhD in cognitive science at Macquarie, Andrew is interested in using an experimental approach to discover how different populations think about the concept of biological function. Andrew’s PhD research explored how attributions of intentionality can facilitate the expression of teleological beliefs about biological and nonbiological natural entities. He is interested in this question from both a cognitive science of religion and dual-process thinking and reasoning perspective.
