I am Director of Art & Education at metaLAB at Harvard and Co-Founder of the The Data Nutrition Project. My work explores the interrelations between complex systems, and the social implications of artificial intelligence through teaching, research, and interactive art.

My methodology uses physical, accessible, and sometimes playful materials to grapple with abstract, existential challenges. Workshop topics have included: artificial intelligence, mis- and disinformation, natural disasters, economics and economic justice, the mysteries of time, social media, and the future of communication, and creativity itself. 

My creative workshops centered around questions in emerging technologies are customized for various levels of experience and understanding, and designed so that the larger the diversity of participants’ experience, the more interesting the workshop outputs. Drawing on my background in philosophy and art, my knowledge and experience as an AI researcher, and my work at metaLAB at Harvard, my creative workshops offer a novel opportunity for engagement with challenging, often intractable, topics.

Designed for researchers and scholars, artists, policy makers, educators, and the general public from diverse fields and perspectives (from the highly technical to not at all technical) to come together, engage, create things, and surface new insights. 

Previous workshops have been at universities (Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University, Vassar, University of Texas), conferences (SXSW, Rightscon), and for private and corporate clients.
