Introduction of Ida Nørregaard Nielsen
New PhD student
Ida resently joined CEPDISC as a PhD student. Ida will contribute to the work package exploring the empirical objections to discrimination. Her project will investigate how the use of statistical and anecdotal evidence influences the moral assessment of discriminatory acts, both in the private and professional spheres.
In her research she is presently occupied with questions about when and why people perceive discrimination to be morally objectionable, statistical discrimination, moral cognition, and the role of empirical methods when investigating moral questions.
