Her research broadly focuses on the ways that new and emerging technologies influence, and are influenced by, politics. She will study the complex social and political implications of advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence, especially as it relates to issues of governance. She also works on issues of cyber security, human rights, and social justice.
Jenn enjoys ballet, almost everything geek-related, and good vegan food. She makes excellent vegan mac and cheese, and she will probably tell you about it.
