My academic research is at the intersection of spirituality and technology.
With a background in political science and philosophy, I now teach Digital Culture at Sciences Po Paris after having (briefly) taught at UC Berkeley during my grad school.
Under the supervision of David Douyère and Gustavo Gomez-Mejia, I am conducting a doctoral research entitled: “Meditation and technological mediations“.
I am interested in mindfulness meditation applications and as part of this I am seeking to determine what their nature and purpose is. How can we use the potential of digital technology to sincerely support the teaching of meditation? What does this mean? How can we avoid turning meditation into yet another “gadget”? How can we use the smartphone to restore mental calm rather than agitation?
Scientists have been interested in the question of the links between meditation and technological uses. Their findings are fascinating.
