Stephanie is a Research Fellow working on the AI and Shared Prosperity Initiative. Her work focuses on ensuring technological gains from AI translate into equitable economic growth and high quality jobs. She is particularly interested in finding ways to include the perspectives of front-line workers in AI design and development, and exploring how AI can create better opportunities for low-wage workers.

Stephanie has also advised nonprofits and foundations as a consultant at The Bridgespan Group, where her projects focused on improving K-12 public education in the United States.
