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.
