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 was published in July 2019 by Oxford University Press.  My book Games in the Philosophy of Biology will be published in the CUP elements series, and is 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.
