I have been fortunate to be able to work on several areas connected to the societal and policy implications of Artificial Intelligence.

In 2024, I joined a panel on AI and Privacy for the National Fair Housing Alliance’s AI Summit. I also wrote about the EU AI Act, after its text was finalized, and the lessons to be learned from it for a US policymaker audience. I also joined as a panelist an event by OTI on this very topic.

In 2023, with OTI’s Policy Director Prem Trivedi, I wrote on how to achieve better outcomes for voluntary initiatives like the one the White House released on Artificial Intelligence. Together, we authored OTI’s comments to the OMB request for comments on its guidance. Also in 2023, I moderated a panel on federal privacy legislation and artificial intelligence with civil society speakers, as well as a keynote from House Energy and Commerce Committee Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). During the final EU AI Act trialog negotiations, I wrote a quick rant about what should and should not be the place for private governance in governing AI. Once the final Trialogue was done, I wrote, for OTI, about the AI Act and its context and significance.

As a fellow at the Digital Interest Lab as NYU, I have been leading a working group, under the supervision of Prof. Anne L. Washington, focused on ethics and artificial intelligence. Dr. Washington’s ideas in the space have been paramount to our understanding of corporate discussions on ethics and artificial intelligence. The working group is working with the Responsible Ai Institute in Canada on providing evidence-based policy perspectives. The first of our work on this issue was published in May 2022, with more to come as the group finishes its analysis.

In 2019, alongside Franco Giandana, I co-authored a piece in the 2019 edition of the Global Information Society Watch on AI, human rights, social justice and development, with a particular focus on Latin America.

in 2020, as an AI and Content Moderation research sprint fellow at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin, I co-authored with Hannah Bloch-Wehba and Angelica Fernandez a policy brief on AI audits and making them meaningful.
