Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, Harvard - Cambridge Fellowship
Ezinne Nwankwo is currently the recipient of the Harvard-Cambridge Fellowship that funds a year of research and scholarship at the University of Cambridge. She holds a B.A. from Harvard University in Applied Mathematics with a focus on Statistics. At Harvard she has been vice president of the Harvard Black Students Association and after serving as a volunteer, tutor, and mentor at the Phillips Brooks House Association she served as the Assessment and Evaluations Chair, a role which enabled her to design a common online volunteer application and bring the discipline of statistical analysis to many of PBHA’s diverse public service programs to evaluate their effectiveness. She was also a data analytics intern at the City of Boston’s Department of Innovation & Technology, a job that saw her using many of the skills she developed in an advanced math class project she did analyzing the employment database of the City of Austin, Texas.
Ezinne is a visiting researcher at the Center for the Future of Intelligence at Cambridge University where she will be researching the policy impacts of AI and methods of evaluation for bias in these algorithms.
