Ines Hipolito is graduated in Philosophy and Cognitive Science. Her area of specialisation is Philosophy of Mind and Cognition and Philosophy of Science. Her research focuses on developing a theory of content of perceptual experience, belief, and its potential relationships in terms of causal effects conceived under optimisation schemes of active inference. Some relevant questions include what inference properties, if any, are implied in the phenomenality of perceptual experience and/or perceptual belief.
Another topic I am interested in is whether scientific realism about inference is justified on the account of brain data analysis methods. This speaks to the question of whether inference exist in the brain independently of our scientific practice or paradigms.
When I am not thinking about these things, I enjoy travelling to discover cultures and myself and exploring the natural world. Check out my pictures on Instagram.
