Postdoctoral Fellow, Centre for Ethics, University of Toronto
I'm a post-doctoral fellow at the Ethics of AI Lab, at the University of Toronto's Centre for Ethics. I currently focus on two lines of research: identifying how AI shifts power and dealing with questions that regard 'Trustworthy AI' and technology governance, policy-making, and ethics-washing; and the ongoing development of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). I ask how different technical choices and monetary functions can result in various social consequences and raise ethical concerns.
My formal background is in Analytic Philosophy and in Information Studies. I submitted my thesis, about Trust in Technologies, to the Graduate Program in Science, Technology and Society at Bar-Ilan University.
