The Project Leader

I am a philosopher and cognitive scientist working on the issue of control: How do we exert control over our actions? What are the limits of that control? And what are the ethical and political implications of our limitations, as they intersect with social contexts and new technologies?

For this reason, I developed my undergraduate thesis on the experience of love in emotional contagion and brain synchronization from a neurophenomenological perspective.
