My primary research areas are digital ethics and ethics of defence technologies, with a particular focus on the ethical, legal, social and governance implications of using digital technologies for national defence and security purposes.
Prior to joining the Oxford Internet Institute, I was Research Fellow in Cyber Security and Ethics – Politics & International Studies – University of Warwick. Prior my work at the University of Warwick, I held a Marie Curie Fellowship at the University of Hertfordshire working on Information Warfare and its ethical implications. I obtained a PhD (Doctor Europeus) in Philosophy at the University of Padua. My PhD thesis focused on the epistemic and ethical implications of the occurrences of e-Trust in distributed systems. I graduated in Philosophy at the University of Bari with a MA thesis on the Symbol Grounding Problem.
