Leila Doty

Leila (she/her) is a senior pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Public Policy with a concentration in Science and Technology Policy, and a minor in Computer Science. Her interests lie at the multidisciplinary intersection of technology, policy, and ethics, and she is particularly fascinated with the complexities of AI regulation. While her studies in technology and policy are motivated by a deep concern for the harmful consequences technology has on vulnerable communities, Leila is critically hopeful for a future in which responsible technological development and deployment allows technology to truly work in the public interest. As Chief of Staff at the Stanford Public Interest Technology (PIT) Lab, she currently works to examine the systems and structures that shape technology and how PIT may be better integrated into the Stanford ecosystem. Over the past three years, Leila is grateful to have had the opportunity to study abroad in Kyoto, work at the U.S. Embassy in Seoul, be a fellow at the NYC Mayor’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer, and intern for CA State Assemblymember Phil Ting. On campus, she serves various communities through leadership positions for the Emerson Social Justice Fellowship, the Multiracial Identified Community at Stanford, and the Stanford Japan Exchange Conference.
