Ethics and AI

My latest research stream examines how managers and organizations can better leverage AI technologies in ways 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.
