Selim Berker received his Ph.D. in philosophy from MIT in 2007. He also holds undergraduate and master's degrees in physics from Harvard. His primary research interests are in ethics and epistemology, which he sees as two aspects of the same field—ethics being the study of what, if anything, we ought to do, and epistemology the study of what, if anything, we ought to believe.
