Lecturer in Philosophy202 College Hill Road, Room 209
Suraj Chaudhary’s research interests are in the philosophy of technology and the philosophy of space. In particular, he is interested in the virtual spaces in which we increasingly interact with one another.
His current research projects aim to articulate some of the unique ethical issues that emerge in the spaces of augmented reality, virtual reality, and social media. These issues include the rapid spread of extreme opinions and the outsized role automated computer programs play in shaping our view of others and the world.
Born in Nepal, Chaudhary received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Kentucky, his M.A. in philosophy from the University of Mumbai, India, and his bachelor’s degree in philosophy and English literature from the University of Colorado at Denver.
