Philip Boucher

Policy Analyst
European Parliamentary Research Service

I’m a sociologist, specialising in the relationship between technology and society. Most of my research has involved the social and ethical assessment of controversial emerging and future technologies (including civil drones, biofuels, CCS, 3D-bioprinting, artificial intelligence and blockchain). I have also developed some theoretical and methodological frameworks to help us to understand technology in society.

Following a doctorate and research positions at the Universities of Manchester and Nottingham, I joined the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. Currently, I work in the Research Service of the European Parliament, delivering bespoke insights to various Committees and Members of the European Parliament, especially the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA).
