Georgina Curto Rex is a postdoctoral fellow at the Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center. Her interdisciplinary research on applied AI ethics focuses on the area of fairness and inclusion. 

Among Curto’s areas of study, she works on identifying and mitigating bias against the poor, particularly as an aggravator of gender and racial discrimination, and using AI to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (AI for Good) through a new generation of policymaking that aims to reduce poverty by acting on discrimination. 

Her papers have been published in AI & Society and in the Proceedings of the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. She and several coauthors were awarded the AI for Good Track Project Award at the 31st International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. 

Curto received her Ph.D. in AI ethics in a joint program offered by the Universities of Ramon LLull (IQS School of Management), Deusto, and Pontificia Comillas (ICADE). She also holds a master of research in management sciences from Ramon Llull (IQS School of Management) and an international executive MBA from IE Business School, where she won the award for the Best Entrepreneurial Project.

Previously, Curto worked as a business and strategic design professor at EINA (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) and as an entrepreneurship consultant for the Barcelona City Council Local Development Agency.

During summer 2023, she will be a visiting scholar at the Kavli Center for Ethics, Science, and the Public at the University of California, Berkeley.
