Dr. Avigail Ferdman, Research Fellow at the Department of Humanities and Arts, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. At the Technion I also lead the Embedded Ethics program.
My research interests are technology & ethics, well-being, autonomous vehicles, public goods and applied philosophy. I am particularly interested in how technology interacts with innate human capacities, and what we should do about it.
Previously I was postdoctoral fellow at Freie Universität Berlin, University of Toronto and the Hebrew University.
