Sebastian is a student at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information. His research explores how technology influences and shapes society, with a particular interest in how humans interact with and learn from technology. Sebastian joins metaLAB via the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society’s 2023 Internship Program to explore critical and creative approaches to teaching with AI.

In his previous role as a research fellow for the University of Toronto’s Critical Digital Humanities Initiative, Sebastian investigated the pervasive use of deceptive design in e-commerce and social media, linking its current use to post-WWII manipulative marketing. He also worked as a researcher for the Failure: Learning in Progress project, which teaches students to embrace, learn and bounce back from failure.
