Biography

I am a Senior Researcher in the Department of Computer Science at Oxford University. My research focuses on investigating the impact of algorithm-based decision makings upon our everyday life, especially for families and young children. For this, I take a human-centric approach, focusing on understanding real users' needs, in order to design technologies that can make a real impact. 

Currently, I am leading the KOALA project and the ReEnTrust project. I work closely with schools, children, families as well as technologists for children, to understand the technological, societal and regulatory challenges that we are facing, to inform national and international policymakers, technology designers and families. 

I am currently part of the IEEE P2089 Age Appropriate Digital Services Framework Working Group and the CDEI Online Safety Data Initiative Expert Group. I was part of the 100 Brilliant Women in AI and Ethics global initiative 2019-20, to promote diversity and equality in this critical research area.
