Hi 👋, I'm Dora Zhao.

I am a Master's student at Princeton University, studying computer science. I am interested in machine learning fairness, AI ethics, and human-computer interaction. Currently, I am working in the Princeton Visual AI Lab, advised by Professor Olga Russakovsky. This past summer, I interned at Sony AI in the AI Ethics group.
I received my undergraduate degree from Princeton University, where I majored in computer science with minors in Asian American Studies and statistics + machine learning. Previously, I have worked in the Stigma and Social Perception Lab led by Professors J. Nicole Shelton and Stacey Sinclair, conducted research on the federal government, and interned at a travel start-up.
