I’m Blair (they/them). I’m a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information.
I’m researching the ethics and governance of artificial intelligence.
More specifically, I’m interested in:
- The political economy, ecology, and ethics of AI value chains
- The design and implementation of AI policies and strategies
- The application of queer/trans philosophy to AI governance
My work integrates perspectives from service sciences, cognitive sciences, policy studies, information management, and queer studies.
My approach is influenced by my experience working as a queer/trans professional on digital transformation and business development projects in public sector, post-secondary, and startup environments.
I have a dog named Huxley and many nameless houseplants.
