Originally from Silicon Valley, Olivia began her career working in digital marketing for tech startups. Following her graduation from the Honors College of Baylor University with a BA in Philosophy and Entrepreneurship, Olivia moved overseas to pursue the opportunity to expand her international network as a GDPR and data privacy researcher in Brussels. This experience prompted her to return to academia to obtain her MSc in Philosophy, concentration in AI Ethics, at the University of Edinburgh.
During her time in Scotland, Olivia co-founded the Beneficial AI Society and completed her dissertation with distinction on the effects of probability on the moral responsibility of autonomous cars. During the final months of her degree, Olivia founded Ethical Intelligence, an ethics consultancy specialising in emerging technology, and launched the company with its initial three clients: Franklin Templeton, the IoT Department of the University of Edinburgh, and the Data for Children Collaborative with UNICEF.
