My name is Alexis Morin-Martel, and I am a philosophy PhD student at McGill University. I work primarily on social epistemology, ethics of technology, and metaethics. I’m currently focusing on my doctoral dissertation, which involves a series of essays focused on the public’s trust in public institutions and experts in the context of the emergence of new technologies (such as generative and predictive AI systems) and the prevalence of social media. My PhD supervisors are Natalie Stoljar and Jocelyn Maclure.
My research is funded by a Joseph-Armand Bombardier SSHRC Doctoral Scholarship. I am also a Doctoral Fellow with the Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire sur la Normativité (GRIN) and the Groupe de recherche Interuniversitaire en philosophie politique (GRIPP). Finally, I am a student researcher at the Observatoire international sur les impacts sociétaux de l’IA et du numérique (OBVIA).
Before delving into philosophy, I represented Canada as a judo athlete for several years and obtained a law degree from UQAM University.
