About

Greetings! I am a native of Atlanta and PhD candidate in the School of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

My research focuses on the social, ethical, and policy implications of artificial intelligence. I am especially interested in formal and informal governance of AI; social implications of AI for domains like education, criminal justice, and labor; the ethics of AI; and science and technology policy. My work is interdisciplinary in nature and draws on ideas and methods from policy, computer science, philosophy, and other social science and technical fields.

I served as the Director of Research, Evaluation, and Planning at the Philadelphia Education Fund and as Secretary for the IEEE 7010-2020 Recommended Practice for Assessing the Impact of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems on Human Well-being. 

Prior to that, I studied Philosophy at Princeton University, focusing on robotics and intelligent systems, before completing a Master’s in Social Policy at the University of Pennsylvania.
