Alice Xiang is the Head of Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability Research at the Partnership on AI, where she leads a team of interdisciplinary researchers conducting research on algorithmic fairness, explainability, criminal justice risk assessment tools, and diversity and inclusion in the field of AI. Alice’s work sits at the intersection of social justice and AI; she seeks to tackle the ways in which algorithmic decision-making can potentially reflect or entrench societal inequities.

She recently taught a course on “Algorithmic Fairness, Causal Inference, and the Law” at Tsinghua University’s Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, where she was a Visiting Scholar. She has also given lectures and speeches at events hosted by the AAAS, IEEE, Harvard Institute of Quantitative Social Science, Tsinghua Statistical Sciences Center, and RE•WORK, among others.

Alice’s research has been published in peer-reviewed machine learning conferences, statistics journals, and law reviews. She has also been quoted in Fortune, the MIT Tech Review, Axios, and VentureBeat, among others, for her work on algorithmic bias, transparency, and criminal justice risk assessment tools.

Prior to joining PAI, Alice worked as an attorney at Gunderson Dettmer, representing startups and venture capital firms. She has also worked in civil appellate litigation at the Department of Justice, econometrics research at the Federal Reserve, and data science at LinkedIn. Alice holds a Juris Doctor from Yale Law School, a Master’s in Development Economics from Oxford, a Master’s in Statistics from Harvard, and a Bachelor’s in Economics from Harvard.
