Aydin is a philosopher of science and (formal, social) epistemologist whose work is informed by game & decision theory and Bayesian statistics.

Before that, he completed his master’s in Logic, Computation, and Methodology at Carnegie Mellon University under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Zollman. His current research concerns the credibility crisis in the social and biomedical sciences; and, in particular, the social dimensions of its sources and solutions. He has published on topics in social epistemology, the foundations of statistics, game theory, and the ethics of artificial intelligence. His Erdös number is 3 (by way of Brian Skyrms to Perci Diaconis to Paul Erdös).
