Clementine Collett


Digital Social Science (2020 cohort)

Clementine Collett is a DPhil student on the ‘Information, Communication and the Social Sciences’ course at the Oxford Internet Institute. Clementine’s doctoral research explores gender bias in artificial intelligence (AI) recruitment technology. From a sociological perspective, she explores how system design intersects with discrimination and inequality, and how this is compounded by decisions surrounding system governance and structural inequalities in education and opportunity. Clementine has worked as lead author on reports such as ‘AI and Gender: Four Proposals for Future Research’ (2019) with the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge and ‘The Effects of AI on the Working Lives of Women’ (2022) with the IDB, OECD and UNESCO.

Clementine did her undergraduate degree at Oxford. After a year of working in consultancy, she then went to Cambridge to study for an MPhil in Gender Studies. Her master’s research explored gender bias surrounding nonverbal and verbal communication in the context of corporate interviews. Clementine then worked as a research assistant at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence in Cambridge, following which she took the position of Head of Research at The Pipeline Ltd in London, a consultancy which focuses on women in leadership and diversity in organisations. Clementine is a Grand Union DTP ESRC Scholar (2020-2024) and the Exonian Graduate Scholar (2020-2024).
