Lily Hu is a PhD candidate in Applied Mathematics and Philosophy at Harvard University. She works on topics in machine learning, algorithmic fairness, and (political) philosophy of technology. Her current time is divided between computer science-related research, where she studies theoretical properties and behaviors of machine learning systems as they bear on deployment in social and economic settings, and philosophical work, where she thinks about causal reasoning about categories like race, theories of discrimination, and what about current technological trends makes capitalism even more distressing.
Lily received an A.B. in Mathematics from Harvard College and spent a year teaching English and Spanish history in Madrid on a Fulbright Fellowship. Her current work is supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
