We caught up with Alison Fernandes, before her online Featured Former Fellow talk on Tuesday April 19th at 12:00pm EST. Here’s what she had to say:
Where are you now?
Dublin, working in the Philosophy Department at Trinity College.
What are you working on?
I’ve just finished a book ‘The Temporal Asymmetry of Causation’ for the Cambridge Elements in Philosophy of Physics series. Next up is book on the function and ontology of modal relations in science (law, causation, chances).
Favorite memory of The Center:
I really enjoyed dinners with the fellows at the centre. Perhaps my favourite memory being overspending on cheese platters at one fancy place and having to make up for it next week with a true mid-west bar meal.
Greatest non-professional achievement since leaving the Center (can be anything from running a marathon to organizing your sock drawer!):
Starting a garden.
5. Best book/movie/tv you’ve seen lately:
I’ve been re-reading the Jane Austen cannon—a regular indulgence.
