Hannah Rose Kirk is a PhD student in Data Science at the University of Oxford. Hannah’s research focuses on data-centric techniques in artificial intelligence, such as active and adversarial learning, to optimise the development of models to detect online harms, while maintaining a duty of care to users and to moderators. She has researched varied forms of online harms, such as offensive memes and emoji-based hate speech, and applied machine learning, natural language processing and computer vision techniques for their detection. She graduated from Trinity College, University of Cambridge in 2018 with a double first in Economics (B.A), holds a MA (Economics and China Studies) from Peking University, and a MSc (Social Data Science) from the Oxford Internet Institute.
