My dissertation chronicles artificial intelligence’s impact on military conflict. Leveraging multi-sited ethnographic methods, I
work with digital rights advocates, policy makers, developers, and security industry
experts to understand how algorithmic surveillance has transformed what it means
to wage and live with war.
My research has practical and theoretical implications. Ethnographically, I am concerned with the kind of humanity at stake in new surveillance regimes. Practically, my research investigates the risks posed by new technologies while outlining how automated surveillance can be implemented without eroding fundamental human rights.
