Biography

Shauna Concannon is an assistant professor in Computer Science (Digital Humanities) at Durham University. Shauna’s work focuses on socio-technical understandings and ethical implications of technologies. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, they apply and critique computational approaches, often in an attempt to understand how knowledge is linguistically encoded in an increasingly technologically-mediated society.

Shauna started her academic life in the humanities, completing a masters in modernist literature at the University of Oxford before completing a PhD on deliberation in computer-mediated dialogue in the Computational Linguistics Lab, Queen Mary University of London. More recently, they completed postdoctoral research at the Universities of Cambridge, York and Newcastle, working on inequities and bias in language-based AI systems, intersectional approaches to data science and interactive video for human-data engagement.
