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, investigates the experiences of workers in Latin America who annotate data for artificial intelligence through digital labour platforms and questions the current sustainability of AI systems. This project argues that data workers, mainly in the Global South, rely on networks of trust comprised of family, and community members who provide support in cases where platforms and AI developers consider labour and data as commodities. This commodification shifts the economic, social and environmental risks associated with productive activities on workers and local communities, affecting their living and working conditions.
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.
