Bio

Erica Neely is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Ohio Northern University specializing in philosophy of technology and computer ethics.  She also makes occasional forays into related fields.  Her focus is on the ethical ramifications of emerging technologies, such as 3D printers, as well as on how new forms of interaction online affect long-standing philosophical questions about who we are and how we should treat each other.

In addition to 3D printing, many of her current projects pertain to questions involving ethics and video games.  Similarly, she is also interested in ethical dilemmas arising from augmented reality.  You can find out more about these projects in the Research and Publications sections of this site.

She strongly believes that philosophers should engage with the general public; her outreach activities can be found under the Public Philosophy section.
