His doctoral research focused on the normative significance of emotion and emotion regulation. Prior to that, he earned a master’s degree in philosophy from the University of Oxford and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Arizona (with a minor in cognitive science). Gubka is investigating the ethics of virtual actions, the value of virtual friendships, and the moral agency of artificial intelligence. He is also interested in how emerging technology, such as emotion detection by artificial intelligence via facial expressions, affects the regulation of our emotions. This is important because of the role that emotions arguably play in our moral knowledge, agency, and overall well-being.
