Briana Vecchione

I'm currently a third-year PhD student in Information Science at Cornell University, where I'm honored to work with Solon Barocas and Karen Levy. My work is supported by a Facebook Fellowship and Google Women Techmakers scholarship.

I'm interested in the measurement and evaluation of sociotechnical systems, with particular attention to systemic issues of algorithmic bias and equity in public policy and human-centered domains. In the past, I've spent some time at Microsoft and Spotify. I am also an affiliate of AI Policy and Practice and Mechanism Design for Social Good. In my spare time, I do my best to make time for amateur photography, art, travel, and music.
