Jakob Mökander

Fellow


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 masters in Social Science of the Internet from the University of Oxford, and a Master of Science in engineering, economics 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.
