Ro Encarnacion

My research interests are at the intersection of algorithmic fairness, public policy, markets, and society.

I want to study, design, and develop technological policy interventions to tackle social and digital equity issues for historically excluded communities. In particular, I’d like to translate interdisciplinary research into informed policy and actionable change to counteract discrimination, algorithmic bias, and unintentional/intentional harms in the technology we deploy.

I am currently a Congressional Innovation Fellow at TechCongress. Previously, I was a software engineer at the Stanford Computational Policy Lab. Before that, I was a software engineer at Capital One and a Civic Technology Fellow at Microsoft Cities. I hold a B.A. in Computer Science from CUNY Lehman College.
