Ethics & AI

My latest research examines how AI systems can be made more capable of making ethical decisions that improve people’s experiences of fairness at work.

My work is guided by research in behavioral ethics and social psychology. This is a useful lens for understanding the impact of automated technology on employee perceptions and behavior.
