I am currently a research scientist at Google in the ethical AI team. Prior to that I did a postdoc at Microsoft Research, New York City in the FATE (Fairness Transparency Accountability and Ethics in AI) group, where I studied algorithmic bias and the ethical implications underlying projects aiming to gain insights from data (see this New York Times article for an example of my work). I received my PhD from the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, studying computer vision under Fei-Fei Li. My thesis pertains to using large scale publicly available images to gain sociological insight, and working on computer vision problems that arise as a result. The Economist, The New York Times and others have covered part of this work. Prior to joining Fei-Fei's lab I worked at Apple designing circuits and signal processing algorithms for various Apple products including the first iPad. I also spent an obligatory year as an entrepreneur (as all Stanford undergrads seem to do). My research was supported by the NSF foundation GRFP fellowship and the Stanford DARE fellowship
