  • Florian is a student assistant in the group Science, Technology and Social Transformation at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) in Vienna.  He studied Sociology at the University of Vienna and at the University of Warsaw and completed his bachelor degree in 2018. Currently, Florian is doing his Masters’ in Science and Technology Studies (STS) at the University of Vienna. He is especially interested in phenomena that lie at the intersection of (new) technologies and social practices and has researched on various topics that relate to novel technologies and/or medicine, such as surrogacy, assisted reproductive technologies, genome editing and Direct-to-consumer genetic testing. Right now, he is working in two projects: one that investigates the social and ethical implications of personalized treatment of neuroendocrine tumours and one that analyzes the public and scientific gene drive discourse. He is currently also working on his MA-Thesis in which he investigates a controversy around a planned in situ experiment of solar geoengineering.
