Mail address


Samuela Marchiori is a PhD candidate in conceptual engineering in the philosophy of technology at TU Delft. Before joining TU Delft, she obtained graduate degrees in law (JD ’20, University of Trento) and philosophy of technology (MSc ’22, University of Twente), and was a visiting student researcher at Columbia University (’19).


Samuela’s research lies at the intersection of philosophy, law, and technology, with a focus on the moral and legal philosophy of new and emerging digital technologies, and an emphasis on artificial intelligence. Her PhD project focuses on moral concept change in relation to socially disruptive technologies (SDTs).
