Headshot of Micah Carroll from the shoulders up smiling.

I’m a second year Artificial Intelligence PhD student at Berkeley working with Anca Dragan and Stuart Russell within BAIR and CHAI. I’m thankful to be supported by the NSF Fellowship.

I’m broadly interested in ensuring that AI systems interfacing with humans will lead to beneficial individual and societal outcomes.

I’m currently working on recommender systems, investigating how the choice of algorithm might affect us users. Another interest of mine is that of human-AI collaboration, with the goal of improving the quality and robustness of agents trained to collaborate with humans.

Before immigrating to the US, I grew up in the amazingly chaotic city of Livorno 🇮🇹 - visit if you get the chance!
