My research interests are broadly related to fairness and ethics of artificial intelligence. Currently, I work on modeling fairness and equity in optimization, outcome-centric social welfare perspectives of fair machine learning, human-centric aspects of ethical AI with a focus on modeling and inferring moral preferences. Along these directions, I am interested in applications from healthcare, modern transportation (e.g. micromobility) and supply chain finance.
