Eddie Jacobs joined the NEUROSEC team as a Research Assistant in September 2019. Having undertaken degrees in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, and in Cognitive Neuroscience from University College London, his research interests now lie broadly at the intersection of these fields, exploring the societal and ethical implications of developments in neuroscience and psychiatry.
Through his work as a member of the BeGOOD project, Eddie is working to place the moral perspectives of the public and patients at the centre of any ethical discussion about new technologies. In addition, as a Visiting Research Associate at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, he researches clinical and ethical aspects arising from the development of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.
