Bio and Head-shot

Abeba Birhane is currently a PhD candidate in cognitive science at University College Dublin in the School of Computer Science. She studies the dynamic and reciprocal relationships between emerging technologies, personhood and society. Specifically, she explores how ubiquitous technologies which are interwoven into our personal, social, political, and economical sphere are shaping what it means to be a person. In doing so, she leans on theoretical frameworks from traditions such as embodied cognitive science, dialogism, complexity science, critical data studies and philosophy of technology.
