Sasha Luccioni

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Mila Institute supervised by Yoshua Bengio, and a Computational Social Scientist at the UN Global Pulse. I am also a co-chair of the Carbon Footprint WG of the Big Science Workshop and a co-founder of Climate Change AI (CCAI), an organization which catalyzes impactful work applying machine learning to the climate crisis.

My goal in research is to contribute towards understanding the data and techniques used for developing Machine Learning approaches, as well as to contribute to the growing field of ‘AI for Good’, applying AI to high-impact societal problems like climate change, health, education, and humanitarian response. Most recently, I have been working on analyzing the data used for training large language models, as well as quantifying the carbon footprint of AI algorithms.

I am currently searching for a full-time Research Scientist position at the intersection of AI and societal impacts for late 2021. Send me an email if you think I would be a good fit for your team!
