Juan Ignacio Murillo
Juan is a Summer Associate at The Decision Lab. He recently graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy and linguistics, and starting this upcoming fall he will be pursuing an MA in Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He is passionate about integrating and applying traditional philosophical thinking—especially in metaethics, the philosophy of language, and the philosophy of science—to empirical research and problems in everyday life. Currently, he is interested in what values are, and how they feature in what we say and how we think. He is also interested in how understanding the role values play in our lives may help us deal with broader societal issues, such as vaccine hesitancy.
