R.A. Waelen MA (Rosalie)

About Me

In her doctoral dissertation, Rosalie develops a critical approach to the normative analysis of AI and uses this approach to discuss the potential ethical, social, and political implications of computer vision technology. 

Before starting her PhD at the University of Twente, she obtained a BA and MA degree in Philosophy from the KU Leuven (Belgium) and a MA in Applied Ethics from LiU (Sweden).

Outside of AI ethics, Rosalie is interested in the philosophy and future of work, critical theory and power struggles, intergenerational justice, environmental ethics, and the ethical questions surrounding (im)mortality and life prolongement. 



Rosalie's dissertation project is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network ‘PROTECT - Protecting Personal Data Amidst Big Data Innovation’, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
