Gabriela Arriagada Bruneau


I have been focusing on Applied Ethics since 2014, when I finished my Bachelor thesis criticising Peter Singer's concept of person. I then worked a bit more on environmental ethics for my Master's dissertation questioning our moral obligations towards future people, focusing on environmental scenarios. Now, I am currently working on big data ethics for my PhD thesis. My research aims to develop a broad account of ethics of big data as macroethics, analysing social media cases to identify the technical and ethical aspects of the collection and use of big data, to clarify when does the use of big data start to be unethical.
