I am a third-year Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin. My research focuses on the ways in which technology reflects and affects human values, so I am usually thinking about ethics, epistemology and aesthetics. My dissertation is about the ethics of virtual actions. I am generally interested in the ethics of information and technology, algorithmic bias, and algorithmic decision making.
Before coming to the University of Texas, I received a B.A. from Columbia University in philosophy and mathematics and briefly worked in the legal field. I grew up in Beirut, Lebanon.
Outside of philosophy, I practice judo, meditate regularly and play video games.
