Christina Kalogeropoulou has a BA in Philosophy, Education, Psychology (majoring in Philosophy) from the University of Athens (Greece). In June 2021, she is expected to finish her MA in Science and Technology Studies (UoA).
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 organisation in Greece, safeguarding human rights in the digital age, and also part of the IGF Greece 2021 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.
