I’m a philosopher of biology and behavioral sciences, philosopher of science, and evolutionary game theorist.  I am Associate Professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, and a member of the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Science at UC Irvine.   I am currently co- administering the NSF grant “Consensus, Democracy, and the Public Understanding of Science” with philosopher of physics James Owen Weatherall (previous NSF grant Social Dynamics and Diversity in Epistemic Communities).  Our co-authored trade book The Misinformation Age was published with Yale University Press.  My monograph The Origins of Unfairness will be published in July 2019, and is available in draft form.  One more book for the CUP elements series – a survey of game theory in philosophy of biology – is in full draft form, and available upon request.  I am also a sometime science writer.  Email me at cailino@uci.edu.  My academia.edu page is here.

When not busy doing philosophy, I am a poultry enthusiast and aerial acrobat.

My Erdos-Bacon number is 7.
