PhD in philosophy.
I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies. I defended my doctoral thesis in December 2014 at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). My thesis is about applied ethics and in particular how we should relate to the risks and opportunities of technological innovation.
I am interested in issues related to political philosophy, bioethics and the philosophy of science. My main interests right now are in transhumanism, rational philanthropy and existential risks.
