On June 25, I will be presenting our research on machine learning annotation instructions with my co-author Milagros Miceli at the CVPR ’21 workshop “Beyond Fairness: Towards a Just, Equitable, and Accountable Computer Vision” organized by Drs. Emily Denton and Timnit Gebru.

About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the Faculty of Information of the University of Toronto, a Junior Fellow of Massey College, and an Ethics of AI Research Fellow at the Centre for Ethics. I am also affiliated with the Center for Critical Race and Digital Studies at New York University.

My research, supervised by Prof. Alessandro Delfanti and funded by an IDRC Doctoral Research Award, focuses on the “crowdsourcing” workers from Latin America who annotate data for machine learning and verify algorithmic outputs through labour platforms. I study how this type of work affects social reproduction from three angles: the role of personal networks and institutions in supporting workers, the organization of workers’ communities and their shared resources, and the social inequalities reproduced in algorithmic and platform design.

I am also a research assistant for the “Human Rights in the Digital Era” project led by Prof. Wendy Wong at the Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society. Previously, I worked for the Laboratory of Computer Science (LRI) at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). I hold a master’s degree in sociology from the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS) and a maîtrise in the humanities from Sorbonne University.
