I am a Postdoctoral Fellow of Embedded EthiCS™ at Harvard University. Embedded EthiCS is Harvard’s computer ethics programme, which integrates ethics lessons into the computer science curriculum. My role as the “Bridge Fellow” is to coordinate outreach with other organizations developing computer ethics curricula.
In my research, I am interested in issues at the crossroads between ethics and social epistemology, especially epistemic injustice, moral and intellectual responsibility, and applications in the ethics of information technology. I also maintain a secondary research interest in the philosophy of education.
I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Sheffield in 2018. My thesis, supervised by Miranda Fricker and Paul Faulkner, argued that we can be blameworthy for using morally defective concepts of the social world, and for being ignorant of apt concepts developed by marginalized groups. From 2019–2021, I was a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy at Dalhousie University, where I also taught Social, Ethical, and Professional Issues in Computer Science. In summer 2021, I co-designed an AI Ethics micro-credential course series for Athabasca University.
I also design games. You can find my work at https://errantcanadian.itch.io/
My pronouns, roughly in descending order of preference (though it varies day by day), are he/they/she.
My surname is pronounced /gets/.
