Tomasz Hollanek

Research Fellow


Dr Tomasz Hollanek is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI) and an Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge, working at the intersection of design theory, technology ethics, and critical artificial intelligence studies. 

His ongoing research explores the possibility of applying critical design methods – prioritizing the goals of social justice and environmental sustainability – in the governance, development, and deployment of AI systems. This includes work on more-than-human-centered approaches to tech design (conceiving of the environment and non-human animals as stakeholders in the design process); the In-depth EU AI Act Toolkit, helping developers translate the requirements of the European Union’s AI Act into design practice; and policy and design recommendations for responsible deployment of AI in the digital afterlife industry (with Dr Katarzyna Nowaczyk-Basińska). 

Previously, Tomasz was a Vice-Chancellor's PhD Scholar at Cambridge and a Visiting Research Fellow at the École normale supérieure in Paris. He has contributed to numerous research projects, including the Global AI Narratives Project at LCFI and the Ethics of Digitalization research program at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard.
