​Sarah Villeneuve

Alumni, Policy Analyst

As a Policy Analyst, Sarah supports projects under the AI + Society and Innovation + Inclusive Growth work streams.

Sarah is particularly interested in emerging technology’s impact on public policy, human well-being, and the economy. Motivated by both the potential benefits technology offers to governments and civil society, and concerns of fairness, accountability and inclusivity, she seeks to contribute to critical conversations surrounding the development and adoption of technology in public life.

Prior to joining BII+E, Sarah worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Cambridge for The Whistle, a project seeking to develop a digital human rights reporting and verification platform. She has previously conducted research on algorithmic discrimination, smart-city marginalization, and predictive analytics for governance.

Sarah is a contributor to the IEEE Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems, as well as the IEEE Standards Association Working Group on Wellbeing Metrics for Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems.

She holds an MSc in Data and Society from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA in Politics and International Relations from Royal Holloway, University of London.
