I am Professor at the School of Communications at Howard University. My works focus on effects of emerging AI technologies in intersection with social and policy problems. Currently, my research looks at how the combination of AI, algorithm, and personal data contributes to social and racial inequalities. My first book The Future of Digital Surveillance (University of Michigan Press, 2021) examines AI in its perpetual appetite for data surveillance. I was an inaugural 2022-23 BKC, RSM Visiting Professor, at Harvard; received several external grants from Facebook, Scripps Foundation, ANA, Urban Comm. Foundation, and more. The most recent grant is from Mozilla Foundation, as I study and teach how to debias AI modeling. I was previously a Research Fellow at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University. I completed my doctorate at the University of Michigan.
