Jakob Mökander is a Visiting Scholar at the Princeton Center for Information Technology Policy. His research – which sits at the intersection of ethics, law, management studies and systems engineering – focuses on developing and evaluating methods to audit automated decision-making systems. The aim thereby is to provide both tech companies and policymakers with the tools they need to ensure that automated decision-making systems are designed and deployed in ways that are legal, ethical, and safe.
Mökander’s home institution is the University of Oxford, where he is pursuing a doctorate in philosophy under the supervision of Luciano Floridi, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics of Information at the Oxford Internet Institute (OII). Mökander’s doctoral research is funded through an Oxford-AstraZeneca studentship.
Academically, Mökander holds one MSc in Social Science of the Internet from the University of Oxford, and one MSc in Industrial Engineering and Management from Linköping University in Sweden. Prior to joining the OII, Mökander was posted at the Swedish Trade & Invest Council in New Delhi, India, where he facilitated international industrial R&D projects.
