Nicholas B. King, PhD, is an associate professor at McGill University, with appointments in the Dept. of Equity, Ethics & Policy; Dept. of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health; and the Max Bell School for Public Policy. His primary research areas are public health policy, ethics, and epistemology. He studies the ways that 'black boxes' of all sorts - from seemingly objective measures of health and health inequalities, to complex algorithms - are shaped by human interests and hidden value judgments, which in turn shape individual decisions, collective behaviors, and public policies.
