Adam Briggle graduated with a PhD in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder. His dissertation research was on the President’s Council on Bioethics. He then worked for three years (2006-2009) as a postdoctoral fellow in the Philosophy Department at the University of Twente on a project researching the relationship between social media and the good life (a Vici project “Evaluating the Cultural Quality of New Media”). He is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of North Texas.
