Dasha Pruss

I study epistemological issues in applied computer science. My research focuses primarily on algorithmic bias and conceptual problems in the use of machine learning in criminal justice. I am also interested in the intersection of philosophy of science and philosophy of law, the ethics of AI, philosophy of statistics, and the history of Soviet cybernetics. Before coming to HPS, I spent a year in the Information Science PhD program at the University of Colorado Boulder. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Utah and I hold a fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
