Personal profile

Research interests

The twofold aim of my present research is to articulate philosophical-anthropological considerations to guide the digitalization of health and wellbeing process and to evaluate particular digital technologies. The guiding research question is how to ensure that digitalization becomes a humanizing force and fosters the fulfilment of the vital human needs of all. Accordingly, the articulation of these human needs is an important part of my research. The question regarding human needs is as tortuous as the question regarding who the human is. In fact, these two questions are intimately related. The obvious difficulty with human needs is that they are not only physical and hence not fully measurable. They are also spiritual, intellectual, imaginative and emotional. Hence, though my approach is primarily philosophical and informed by a rich and multifaceted Catholic intellectual tradition, it also involves drawing on other disciplines such as theology, economics, sociology and psychology.
