Maya Indira Ganesh (she/her) is a tech and digital cultures theorist, researcher, and writer. She has submitted a PhD dissertation in Cultural Sciences at Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany. This research examines the political-economic, social, and cultural dimensions of how the 'ethical' is being shaped in data-field worlds, rich in histories and imaginaries, of AI and autonomous technologies. Prior to this, she worked at the intersection of gender justice, digital activism, and international development across India, parts of Africa, and SE Asia. Hence her work weds questions of power, justice, and global inequalities to those of language, knowledge, and the body, as mediated by digital technologies. She has also worked with UNICEF India, and the APC Women’s Rights Program. In September 2021, Indira Ganesh will take up a role as co-course leader of a new Master's program on AI, Ethics, and Society at the University of Cambridge, UK.
