Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, where I have a dual appointment in the Department of Statistics and the Department of Philosophy. I am also a faculty fellow of the Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology & Society and a visiting professor in the Decision Sciences department at INSEAD.
I work primarily in ethics, law, and policy of artificial intelligence and machine learning, especially in medical applications. I also work in Bayesian statistics and epistemology. My research has appeared in Science, Nature Machine Intelligence, Nature Digitial Medicine, and the Harvard Business Review. It has also been profiled in Forbes, STAT News, China Business News, Tencent QQ, and The Edge Markets (Singapore). I teach BA, MA, MBA, and PhD classes in statistics, philosophy, and decision making.
Before joining the University of Toronto, I was an Assistant Professor at INSEAD, both in France and Singapore, and a postdoc at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). I received a JD, cum laude, from Harvard Law School, an MS in Statistics and a PhD in Philosophy, from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I also practiced law at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP in Los Angeles, a leading business litigation firm, where I represented Samsung, Google, Mattel, and DreamWorks Animation, among other clients. In particular, I spent much of my time working on the now famous (infamous?) “doll wars” litigation between Mattel, the makers of Barbie, and rival company MGA, the makers of Bratz.
