Andreas Spahn is an assistant professor with the Philosophy& Ethics research group at the department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences. His research focusses on ethics of technology, particularly ethics of energy technologies. He has worked and published on ethics of behavior change technologies and persuasive technologies, ethics of energy systems, and environmental ethics.
The transition towards sustainability requires both technological innovations and a change of user behavior. How can we design technologies in a way that they meet our social values, such as sustainability and well-being? How can we persuade users to change their behavior? What are the ethical limits to technological persuasion?
