Ciano has studied Behavioral Science (BA and MA; graduation: 1997, Cum Laude) and Philosophy (BA and MA; graduation: 1999, Cum Laude), and wrote his Ph.D.-thesis (2003) on the deconstruction of the notion of substance (in Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Leibniz, and, especially, Nietzsche) at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Ciano was a research fellow at Basel University, Switzerland (2002-2003) and Indiana University/Harvard University, U.S.A. (2004-2005).

Ciano’s research focuses on "existential technology"; he investigates how technologies increasingly shape our identity, impact our freedom and responsibility, and influence different facets of our life. His main areas of interest are philosophy of technology, anthropology, phenomenology, philosophy of mind, ethics, philosophy of religion, metaphysics, epistemology, semiotics, Peirce, Nietzsche, and Aristotle.
