PhD Research

PhD Research in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures


I am a PhD student and teaching assistant based at the Centre for Culture and Ecology, Durham University (UK). My research concerns the relationship between technology and human existence, with a particular focus on the role played by technologies in both shaping the process of human evolution and structuring scientific knowledge of this process. Following insights developed by contemporary philosophers such as Bernard Stiegler and Peter Sloterdijk, my research starts from the idea that our understanding of technology needs to be reconceived if we are to meet the challenges posed by the ongoing climatic, economic and social crises. I am a member of the transdisciplinary scientific collective Internation and on the editorial board of the journal Kaiak: A Philosophical Journey. My research has been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities, Philosophy and Technology and Technophany: A Journal for Philosophy and Technology.
