Graduate Student

  • BA,  New York University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Alice is a PhD candidate and a fellow at the Schwartz Reisman Institute of Technology and Society (SRI). She is interested in AI ethics and social formal epistemology. She thinks about how we should interpret different trade-offs found in machine learning and how we can make moral advice implementable and relevant for practitioners. She also uses formal models to investigate pressing issues in our social discourse today, such as questions about the value of diversity, misinformation, fairness, and polarization.

She grew up in Taiwan and moved to Abu Dhabi for university before coming to Toronto. When she is not doing philosophy, she spends her time dancing, writing and reading poetry, kitesurfing, and training for triathlon.
