Dawid Kasprowicz is a research assistant at c:o/re where he coordinates the fellow program. From 2005 to 2012 he studied media studies and philosophy at the Ruhr-University in Bochum and at the Université du Littoral Côte d’Opale in Dunkerque. He graduated with a master thesis on Bernard Stieglers concept of psychopower. From 2013 to 2016 he was a PhD student at the Institute for Advanced Studies on Media Cultures of Computer Simulation in Lüneburg. In his dissertation, which was published in 2019 (Nomos), he developed a history of knowledge about the concept of immersion. From 2018 till 2021, he has been a postdoc at the chair for Theory of Science and Technology at the RWTH Aachen University where he was also the Head of the Computer Science Studies Lab (CSS-Lab). In autumn 2021 he was a DAAD-Visiting Scholar in the Department of Philosophy at the University Rouen (Natalie Depraz).

In his habilitation he develops a phenomenological approach to the philosophy of computational sciences based on the concept of experience and a theoretical intersection of phenomenology of technology and philosophy of science. His main research fields include theory and history of embodiment, phenomenology, human-robot-Interaction, philosophy of computer simulation.
