Cristina Ceballos

Postdoctoral Fellow
Kavli Center for Ethics, Science, and the Public

Cristina Ceballos studies artificial intelligence ethics and regulation, with a focus on government agencies and how they address questions of privacy and algorithmic bias. She has published on disparate impact in the administrative state (in the Yale Law Journal) and about Customs and Border Protection and its use of face recognition technology. During law school, she worked at the American Civil Liberties Union in the Immigrants’ Rights Project.  As a postdoctoral fellow at the Kavli Center, Cristina will push forward on two main lines of research: first, examining how government agencies adopt machine learning tools, and second, analyzing market norms and how these norms respond to novel algorithmic tools. One of her projects explores the ethics of price personalization algorithms, which can be used to offer different prices to different people for identical goods and services. Cristina holds a B.A. cum laude in Physics & Philosophy from Yale and a JD/PhD in law and philosophy from Stanford.
