Muriel Leuenberger is a visiting research Fellow at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics from August 2021 to July 2023. She works in medical and digital ethics with a focus on issues of identity. During the postdoc project at the Uehiro Centre she analyzes how our narrative identity is influenced by the self-knowledge we may gather through novel technologies, notably through neuroimaging and various digital technologies such as health trackers. During her PhD at the University of Basel Muriel investigated the concept of authenticity and whether using a neural intervention can compromise or promote authenticity.
