Richmond Wong studies how designers and UX professionals attend to values and ethical issues in their professional practices, and how new design methods can aid in this work. He is a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Long Term Cybersecurity at the University of California Berkeley, where he draws on approaches from design research, critical and speculative design, and science & technology studies.
Karen Boyd is a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, College Park. She studies values in practice and ethical sensitivity in technology development, especially machine learning development.
Jake Metcalf, PhD, is a researcher at Data & Society, where he is a member of the AI on the Ground Initiative, and works on an NSF-funded multisite project, Pervasive Data Ethics for Computational Research (PERVADE). For this project, he studies how data ethics practices are emerging in environments that have not previously grappled with research ethics, such as industry, IRBs, and civil society organizations. His recent work has focused on the new organizational roles that have developed around AI ethics in tech companies.
Katie Shilton is an associate professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her research explores ethics and policy for the design of information technologies. She is the PI of the PERVADE project, a multi-campus collaboration focused on big data research ethics. Other projects include developing privacy-sensitive search for email collections; analyzing ethical cultures in computer security research; and building tools to facilitate ethics discussions in mobile application development.
