Christina Kalogeropoulou has a BA in Philosophy, Education, and Psychology (majoring in Philosophy) from the University of Athens (Greece). She is also holding an MSc in Science and Technology Studies (UoA, Greece), and a MA in Philosophie et Société from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (France).

Trying to make sense of this hyperconnected, “onlife” world, her current research interests lie in the fields of philosophy of technology, digital ethics, as well as internet governance. She is an active member of Homo Digitalis, the first digital rights Civil Society organization in Greece, safeguarding human rights in the digital age, and also part of the IGF Greece Executive Committee. She has attended various schools on Internet Governance as well as programming, aspiring to gain useful knowledge and bridge the gap between humanities and tech-related fields.
