Charlie Giattino

Charlie Giattino completed his PhD in Neuroscience at Duke while a DCLT Fellow in 2017-2019. His dissertation research focused on using electroencephalography (EEG) to understand the brain basis of cognitive functions such as attention, working memory, and even our conscious awareness of the world, most recently by applying machine learning (ML) techniques to decode brain activity.

As a DCLT Fellow, Charlie worked with Director Jeff Ward to develop legal and policy solutions for mitigating harm from the malicious use of AI, primarily by exploring how public health approaches to dealing with systemic risk (e.g., from infectious disease) can be usefully applied to the AI context.
