Elisa Celis

Elisa_Celis_2021I am an assistant professor in the Statistics & Data Science department at Yale University. I study the manifestation of social and economic biases in our online lives via the algorithms that encode and perpetuate them. My research leverages both experimental and theoretical approaches, and my work spans multiple disciplines including data science, machine learning, fairness in socio-technical systems and algorithm design.

At Yale I co-founded the Computation and Society Initiative. I am a member of the Scholar’s Council of UCLA’s Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, an affiliated faculty of  Yale’s Institution for Social and Policy Studies and Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, and an Advisory Board Member of the A+ Alliance.
