Dr Anjali Mazumder

GGI is pleased to announce that Dr Anjali Mazumder will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Annual Lecture on 22 September.

Dr Mazumder is the Alan Turing Institute lead on AI and Justice & Human Rights. Her work focuses on empowering government and non-profit organisations by co-designing and developing responsible and inclusive data and AI methods, tools and frameworks for safeguarding people from harm – particularly those most vulnerable, building resilient institutions and systems, and accelerating the opportunity for inclusive, fair and just services, systems, economies, and communities.

She has over 15 years’ experience tackling fundamental statistical problems of societal importance – human rights, justice, security, the law, education, public health and safety – working at the interface of research, policy and practice in the UK, the US, and Canada.

She was appointed to Canada’s National DNA Databank Advisory Committee (2012-2018) and serves on the UK Forensic Science Regulator’s fingerprint interpretation subgroup, and the senior management board of the UK’s Policy and Evidence Centre for Modern Slavery and Human Rights.

She has also served the Royal Statistical Society in a variety of ways, most recently appointed to the Statistics & Law Section and the Data Science Section committees.

She holds a doctorate in Statistics from the University of Oxford and two masters’ degrees in Measurement and Evaluation, and Statistics from the University of Toronto.

GGI’s annual lecture forms part of our Festival of Governance, which this year will focus on the theme of fairness – Good governance because fairer is better.
