Christian Rome Lansang is a junior at Brown University concentrating in Science & Society with a focus on normative and quantitative decision-making. Interested in the intersections of law, technology and race, Christian hopes to attend law school and critically examine and reform race-related disparities that exist in the context of race and class in the status quo. Currently, he works with Professor Jeffrey Poland researching ethical issues related to the rise of Big Data such as rights to privacy, informed consent, and racism embedded in faulty algorithmic assumptions. He looks forward to furthering this research as well as investigating the rising world of cryptocurrencies during his semester in Washington. Christian also enjoys fashion design, playing soccer and watching Black Mirror.
