Postdoctoral Fellows

Benjamin Davis (Centre for Ethics Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics), Philosophy, Emory University

My research considers the responsibilities of elite actors today. My publications speak to the quotidian decisions of pre-professional and college-educated actors. Daily practices are always tied to divisions of labor across the globe (who sewed those chinos?) and within cities (who pulls espresso and sweeps donut crumbs?). I am interested in the orientations and pressures that entangle elite actors in a glass-paneled environment and the ruptures and challenges that invite them to — or demand that they — get out of it.

Juliette Ferry-Danini (Centre for Ethics Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, 2020-21), Philosophy, Sorbonne Université

I am a philosopher of medicine interested in conceptual, epistemological and ethical questions about medicine and science in general.


Ori Freiman (Centre for Ethics Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, 2021-22), Science & Technology Studies, Bar-Ilan University

I have a formal background in analytic philosophy (BA) and information science (MA). I have submitted my Ph.D. thesis to the Graduate Program in Science, Technology, and Society at Bar-Ilan University, about the role of knowledge in forming trust in technology. My current research explores issues of trust and ethics in AI. I do so by focusing on emerging and disrupting AI-based technologies, and by engaging with contemporary discourses in philosophy of technology, social epistemology, and science & technology studies (STS).
