Biography and Research Interests

Eva Albers has studied Medicine since 2013 and Philosophy since 2017 at the University of Freiburg. Her main interest lies in the exploration of underlying anthropological concepts of medical practice. Inspired by the question, “What does it mean to help another human being lead a (more) healthy life?”, she focuses on the use of phenomenological and hermeneutical methods for diagnostic and therapeutic situations, theories of embodiment and existential philosophy.

As part of the interdisciplinary research project L’homme machine by the cluster of excellence BrainLinks – BrainTools in 2018, she researched the potential of artistic approaches to technological innovations in neuroscience through what she calls “Körperbildinterviews”, a performative art installation that tries to verbally and graphically grasp a representation of a person’s embodied self. Currently, she works in the Saltus! Group Responsible Artificial Intelligence concerning the effect of artificially intelligent neurotechnological devices on the patient’s sense of agency.
