A Story of Ethics & Technology

I studied Philosophy of Science and Technology at the University of Toronto (Hons. BA), Epistemology, Ethics and Mind at the University of Edinburgh (MSc) and Science and Technology Studies at York University (MA). I completed my Ph.D. on the ethics and design of military AI at the Northwestern Italian Philosophy Consortium.


Additionally, I served as a junior associate at the Global Catastrophic Risk Institute from 2013 to 2018, where my primary research and authorship was on atomically precise manufacturing (APM) and other nanotechnology. I was previously a researcher at the Bruno Kessler Foundation in 2023, working on the ethics of generative AI as well as a Stiftung Südtiroler Sparkasse Global Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies at Eurac Research. Similarly, I am currently an expert consultant at Ethical Intelligence Associates Ltd., where I provide consultancy for companies to gain a competitive edge by mitigating ethical risks and formulating custom tools and protocols to embed ethics into their practices that align with current ethical guidelines and company values.


Currently, my main area of research revolves around Value Sensitive Design (VSD), its philosophical foundation as well as its potential application to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence.
