Postdoctoral Associate, SSRC
Morgan Frank is a Postdoctoral Associate affiliated with MIT’s Media Lab, the Institute for Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS), and the Initiative on the Digital Economy (IDE). Morgan is interested in the complexity of AI, the future of work, and the socio-economic consequences of technological change. While many studies focus on phenotypic labor trends, Morgan’s recent research examines how genotypic skill-level processes around AI impact individuals and society. Combining labor research with investigations into the nature of AI research and the social or societal implications of AI adoption, Morgan hopes to inform our understanding of AI’s impact. Morgan has a PhD from MIT’s Media Lab and a masters degree in applied mathematics from the University of Vermont where he was a member of the Computational Story Lab.
