My earliest concern about technology's clash with society was in privacy, and my work first founded the area of study known as data privacy and I am the founding Director of the Data Privacy Lab at Harvard. Similarly, my work was first to demonstrate discrimination in online algorithms, and so, my work first founded the new emerging area known as algorithmic fairness.
In 2016, my family and I moved to Currier House at Harvard College, as the X.D. and Nancy Yang Faculty Deans of Currier House. Being a Faculty Dean has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Currier House is a teaching-learning environment for about 300 amazing and exciting Harvard College undergraduates. I am glad to know, work, grow and live with each one of them.
