H. Orri Stefánsson

Associate Professor, Philosophy

I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies. Before joining the Institute for Futures Studies, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Collège d’études mondiales in Paris, where I was associated with the Chair on Welfare Economics and Social Justice and the Franco-Swedish Program in Philosophy and Economics. I defended my PhD thesis Decision theory and counterfactual evaluation  in philosophy from the London School of Economics and Political Science in May 2014.

My current research mostly concerns what decisions to make and what beliefs to hold when one has evidence of objective probabilities, but I also work on the philosophy of risk, chance and counterfactuals, and formal ethics. More information about H. Orri Stefánsson.
