Ethics & AI

My latest research explores ethical hazards of AI and the ensuing challenges managers face when implementing AI in the workplace. I seek to understand how managers can think about and navigate these challenges to improve fairness and reach better outcomes.

My work is guided by behavioral theories of (un)ethical behavior and social psychology. This approach is useful for understanding how the use of technology impacts moral perceptions and behavior, especially ethical “blind spots” that may lead people to deviate from their values.
