Currently a PhD candidate in Autonomous Weapons Systems and International Humanitarian Law at Europa-Universität Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder), Gabriel is a researcher in AI law, policy, and ethics. His thesis analyses ethical and legal implications of introducing autonomy into lethal weapons’ systems. Previously, he won the DAAD-funding for his project ‘“Intelligent” Weaponry; Laws and Ethics’ and later joined the International AI for Earth Observation Lab in Munich as a Beyond Fellow. With a passion for exploring the intersection between technology and ethics/law, his research spans across a wide range of areas, including ethical/responsible uses of AI, smart city technologies, digital colonialism, privacy, comparative analysis in the application of technologies, autonomy in weapons systems and more. As a strong advocate for “human-friendly” autonomous systems, Gabriel is committed to designing technologies that prioritize the needs and well-being of humans. Additionally, he possesses an intermediate level of proficiency in Python programming, allowing him to understand sophisticated software solutions to complex problems.
