  • Head of Research & Partnerships
  • Company: Centre for the Governance of AI (GovAI), Future of Humanity Institute

Jade works at the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford. She has responsibility for research management and partnerships for the newly-established Centre for the Governance of AI, led by Prof Allan Dafoe. She is also a researcher with the Centre – her work focuses on modelling the politics of strategic general-purpose technologies. Specifically, she examines the relationships between firms, the government, and the research community with a view to understanding how these dynamics seed cooperation and conflict.

She is also completing her D.Phil in International Relations at Oxford University, under a Rhodes Scholarship. Alongside her work at FHI and her dissertation work, she’s also a Founding Partner of Rhodes Incubator (an entrepreneurial incubator serving the network of Rhodes Scholars), as well as Co-Lead of the Rhodes Artificial Intelligence Lab (an action lab consultancy which uses AI and machine learning to tackle high-impact problems), and COO and Founder of Soul Capital (New Zealand’s first impact investment fund).
