Ph.D. student, School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology


Stephanie is an MSc candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford and holds a BSc in Politics from the London School of Economics (LSE). She researches the intersection of digital technologies and public policy in the UK and the EU, chiefly AI governance, online harms, and data ethics. Her thesis concerns the construction of a privacy-based regulatory framework for deepfakes, drawing on a fundamental rights perspective in EU jurisprudence. More broadly, Stephanie is interested in bridging the gap between near and long-term AI governance and exploring future-oriented regulatory strategies in an increasingly automated, data-driven, and machine-intelligent world. She has worked for the Chartered Institute for IT, Centre for Future Worlds, Humanists UK, multiple public affairs firms, and was Head of Research at the student-run AI in Business and Ethics Summit (AIBE).
