About

I’m Franco Amati, and I write speculative fiction.

I grew up in New Jersey and live in New York. I studied cognitive science in graduate school and did my doctoral research in psycholinguistics.

Some of my favorite topics to write about include artificial intelligence, free will, consciousness, embodiment, introversion, deception, mind reading, aging, the philosophy of work, the psychology of language, the subtleties of social interaction, and the absurdity of life.

If you’d like to learn more, check out the pubs tab to see what I’ve written. The news tab has updates and story commentary. And make sure to look at the favorite people section to see pictures of my two cats.
