I work to make technology safe and beneficial, focusing on AI and data-heavy technologies.
I am active in three sectors: academia, industry, and non-profit.
My academic work
My research focuses on how to help companies, investors, and public administrators engage with AI and data more responsibly.
My most recent completed project was creating a guidebook for responsible AI due diligence.
My industry work
I work with companies and investors to design and implement responsible AI strategies.
For example, I lead AI ethics efforts at Bria.ai. I design and oversee the implementation of the company's responsible AI strategy.
My non-profit work
I advocate and promote AI ethics.
At MKAI, I am a Specialist Advisor for AI Ethics. My main project is supporting developing countries on responsible AI issues.
► My work in AI ethics in the last year and a half, after my PhD, includes winning three grants, working with 11 organizations in various roles, and winning the "best paper award" at the top AI Ethics journal, FAccT.
►I earned a PhD in Philosophy at UC Berkeley. My PhD was about how power dynamics shape research in science and in the discipline of machine learning. I published peer-reviewed papers in top journals, co-edited a book, gave ~50 talks, taught hundreds of students, and won 4 honors and awards for my research and teaching.
► I worked in various tech roles, from QA to VP.
