Karim Nader


I am a fourth-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, aesthetics, and epistemology. My dissertation is about the ethics of virtual actions. I am also interested in others issues at the intersection of ethics and aesthetics, 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.
