Marjo Rauhala (social scientist, ethicist; PhD, MSSc., BA), is a senior researcher at AAT whose research interests focus on the ethical dimensions of technology R&D, ageing, independent living and user involvement. In her work, Rauhala investigates theoretical and practical concerns in ethics and technology R&D in the engineering context. In studying ethical phenomena in their contexts she combines methods of empirical social research and more traditional academic ethics. Rauhala has broad experience in ethics ranging from academic philosophical research, ethics management in international and national cooperation projects, to cooperation with the Austrian Bioethics Commission and ethics screening and review as an ethics expert of the European Commission (HORIZON 2020 and FP7).
