Alumni Connect Mentor (AI & Computational Techniques - Social Data)

Bhargav is a 2nd year MACSS student working with Prof. James Evans at the Knowledge Lab. They are interested in how we can use AI and computational techniques to glean information from social data. At the same time, they are also concerned about the ethical issues surrounding AI and data privacy, and the considerations one must make when using such tools, as well as the biases and injustices which AI can potentially propagate. They are interested in pursuing a PhD in related topics. They were born in the south of India, grew up in the USA, and have since travelled around and lived in different parts of the world, and most recently were working as a research engineer in Lille, France before joining UChicago. In their spare time they enjoy dancing to techno and house music, bouldering and rock climbing, and reading and writing.
