Personal profile


Dr Nina Lewis is a research fellow with the AiLECS Lab, undertaking research and engagement on ethical provenance and use of image datasets for machine learning.

Nina has a strong track record with applied research initiatives that bring multidisciplinary lenses to social challenges, and which connect lived experience and practice-based knowledge to research and policy. She collaborates on projects that pay attention to downstream effects of data-driven technology in allieviating or entrenching disparities of access and outcomes arising from dynamics of power and vulnerability; and which explore the potential for inclusive, sustainable and consentful technology.

She has previously worked at Monash on the Imagined Archives project (research co-production with people who have direct experience living in out of home care), and the Rights in Recordkeeping by Design project. Most recently she was employed outside the university sector as a Research and Engagement Manager with the Consumer Policy Research Centre, leading a project to engage with the community sector and deliver independent policy research to government in relation to implementation of Australia's Consumer Data Right.
