I’m an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Computer Science in the Department of Philosophy and in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University, where I am a core member of the Institute for Experiential AI and the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks.
I am part of the inaugural cohort of Schmidt Futures AI2050 Early Career Fellows, and a collaborator at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. In 2020-21, I was the Council Fellow on the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Data Policy.

- I’ll be presenting two new works at CogSci 2022. “Diversity and homophily in social networks” (w/ Hannah Rubin) is an agent-based simulation examining how various aspects of homophily affect the performance of diverse social networks in learning. “Homophily and incentive effects in use of algorithms” (w/ Riccardo Fogliato, Shantanu Gupta, Zachary Chase Lipton & David Danks) is an empirical study on the transfer of findings from social psychology to human-algorithm interaction in AI-informed decision-making.
- My article, “Diversity in sociotechnical machine learning systems”, (with Maria De-Arteaga), is now out in Big Data & Society, and it’s open access.
- I’m excited to share the application portal for the Intelligence, Data, Ethics, And Society (IDEAS) Summer Program–a week-long, expenses-paid program for undergraduate students on ethics, politics & social impacts of AI and data science. We are particularly excited to welcome students from historically underrepresented and marginalized communities. Please share!
- I’m going to be at UC Berkeley for most of Jun 27 – Aug 5, 2022 as a long-term participant at Simons Institute’s Summer Cluster: Interpretable Machine Learning. Please reach out if you’re in the area.
- I received a seedling grant from the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks at Northeastern for a project on responsible exploration and data sharing in epistemic networks.
- I have two open-access articles on algorithmic fairness out in Philosophy Compass and Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
- We have received a grant from Block Center for Technology & Society at Carnegie Mellon University for our project “An Integrated Framework for Studying and Regulating Human-AI Hybrid Decision-Making Systems” (co-PIs Zack Lipton, David Danks).
- Our symposium, “Conceptual and Methodological Challenges in Algorithmic Fairness,” (co-organized with Dan Malinsky) has received the Third PSA Women’s Caucus Prize Symposium. The symposium will take place at the PSA2020 in Baltimore, MD.
