Shalaleh Rismani



Shalaleh is pursuing her Ph.D. student in electrical and computer engineering as a member of the RAISE lab at McGill University. She completed her masters in biomedical engineering and bachelors in mechanical engineering (mechatronics specialization) at the University of British Columbia. Since her introduction to IDEO’s human-centered design process at Shad Valley, Shalaleh has been fascinated by how good and bad design impacts human lives. Her current research interest is to understand how we can quantify the ethical and social impacts of automated decision support systems used in our society. Shalaleh is also co-director of the Open Roboethics Institute. In her spare time, Shalaleh loves to dance, practice Muaythai, run, listen to podcasts, and re-watch the Harry Potter series.
