I'm Marion Boulicault, a Distinguished Postdoctoral Scholar in Ethics & Technology at the MIT College of Computing. I have a PhD in philosophy from MIT, an MPhil in the history & philosophy of science from the University of Cambridge, and a BSc in environmental science from UNC Chapel Hill.
My work takes a feminist approach to questions in the ethics of technology, philosophy of science, and bioethics. My dissertation (awarded the Benjamin Siegel Prize) investigated how social norms are entangled in scientific measurements of fertility. I've written about my research for The Guardian and Slate.
I'm the Director of Interdisciplinary Research at the Harvard GenderSci Lab and a Director of MIT's Experiential Ethics program. From 2015 to 2021, I was a Neuroethics Fellow at the Center for Neurotechnology, and from 2019 to 2020, I was a Teaching Fellow with Embedded EthiCS at Harvard.
I've co-directed PIKSI, a philosophy summer school for students from under-represented groups. Before my graduate studies in philosophy, I was a Research Associate at the Environmental Law Institute.
