Daniel Susser

I am here, on Zoom.


A philosopher by training, I work at the intersection of technology, ethics, and policy. My research aims to highlight normative issues in the design, development, and use of digital technologies, and to clarify conceptual issues that stand in the way of addressing them through law and other forms of governance. At the moment, I'm especially focused on questions about privacy, online influence, and automated decision-making.

I am the Haile Family Early Career Professor and assistant professor in the College of Information Sciences & Technology, research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute, and affiliated faculty member in the Philosophy Department at Penn State University.

From 2016-18, I was an assistant professor in the Philosophy Department at San Jose State University. Before that, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Information Law Institute at New York University's School of Law, a member of the Institute's Privacy Research Group, and a visiting scholar in NYU's Department of Media, Culture, and Communication.
