I am interested in the ways in which innovation and technology can contribute to creating a just society (e.g., freedom, fairness, democracy) and promoting people's flourishing (living meaningful and fulfilling lives). If you have similar interests, please feel free to contact me.

Marc currently (2020) writes a book on applied/professional ethics, targeted at people who work in tech: computer and data scientists, software developers and engineers, designers, and people in marketing and management roles; see: ethicsforpeoplewhoworkintech.com.
