  • Mixed-Method Research

 My research focuses on exploring artificial intelligence as a knowledge project––particularly where AI research emerges from the intersection of technical work and the cognitive and neuro- sciences––using mixed social-scientific and science-historical approaches. I’m also interested in thinking epistemically about the knowledge produced through the use of AI techniques themselves, and in productively confronting feminist theory to the different levels of the AI stack (and vice versa).  

Formally, I am a DPhil candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute and a Research Assistant on the Creative Algorithmic Intelligence project based between the OII and the Oxford-Man Institute.

I’m always interested in exchanging with others working on directly, tangentially, or methodologically related questions––so do drop me a line!
