Rui-Jie Yew

I am a first-year CS PhD student at Brown University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Suresh Venkatasubramanian. I am also affiliated with the Center for Technological Responsibility (CNTR) and the Data Science Institute (DSI). My research focuses on data regulation and ML liability.

Previously, I graduated from MIT CSAIL with an S.M. in Technology and Policy advised by Dylan Hadfield-Menell. I received a Joint Bachelors in Computer Science and Mathematics from Scripps College and Harvey Mudd College, where I was advised by David Roselli and George Montañez. I have also developed open-source differential privacy software at Google, conducted research within the AI Ethics team at Sony AI, and developed AI policy frameworks at NIST.
