BioMs. Garba-Sani is a 2022-23 UK Commonwealth Fund Harkness Fellow in Health Policy and Practice, based at Stanford University and Lighthouse Silicon Valley (a justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion think tank). Her research seeks to explore how a person’s demographic characteristics (especially ethnicity) influences their perception of the use of AI in health and care. In particular, she is interested in understanding and tackling negative perceptions of AI within certain communities to maximise engagement in the development, use and evaluation of AI in health and care from diverse populations. The intention is to mitigate the risk of AI amplifying health inequities through algorithmic biases and systems missing out on the potential of AI to reduce disparities.
