Naomi Scheinerman received her PhD in Political Science from Yale University where her research explored avenues for democratic participation in regulating new and emerging biotechnologies, including gene editing tools and artificial wombs, as well as artificial intelligence applications and algorithmic designs. She shows that including randomly selected bodies of lay individuals within administrative agencies’ rule-making process results in policies that are better informed, mitigate abuse and domination of vulnerable populations, and instill trust in the resulting policy. Though grounded in political and democratic theory and political philosophy, her approach is necessarily interdisciplinary, engaging in the fields of ethics and moral philosophy, epistemology, philosophy of science, law, and policy. Naomi also writes for The Genetic Literacy Project and taught for Yale’s Summer Institute in Bioethics. Prior to attending Yale, Naomi worked as a research assistant at The Hastings Center, a bioethics research institute, and received her BA in philosophy and political science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with High Honors. Naomi is an AI Initiative Joint Fellow-in-Residence.
