Matthew Jordan graduated from the Arts & Science program in 2017 and is excited to return to teach ARTSSCI 4HS3 / History of Science Inquiry again in 2020-21. He spent two years at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, obtaining graduate degrees in psychology and the history of science. Matthew is a proudly interdisciplinary scholar who researches the history of artificial intelligence, the nature mathematical intuitions, and the role of moral psychology in social media. He also teaches INNOVATE 1Z03, a course on the social issues around AI. His overriding interest is in improving the dissemination of complex ideas from academics to the public and between academics in disparate fields.
When he’s not teaching, Matthew performs funk music, does improv comedy, plays chess, and zooms through audiobooks.
