Clementine Collett is a student on the DPhil in Information, Communication & the Social Sciences.

Clementine Collett is a DPhil student at the Oxford Internet Institute. Clementine’s doctoral research focuses on the intersection of artificial intelligence and gender bias, with the specific project of bias in hiring. Clementine is researching the sociological and psychological nature of bias in the context of organisational recruitment, and how this might be encapsulated or reduced in AI recruitment systems. This includes analysing the use of behavioural science in these systems, for example gendered associations when it comes to nonverbal communication, gestures, facial expressions and language. After completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford, Clementine completed her MPhil in Gender Studies at the University of Cambridge. Her MPhil research focused on gender bias surrounding nonverbal and verbal communication in the context of corporate interviews. Clementine then worked as a research assistant at Cambridge, in the Gender Studies department and at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence, where she co-authored the report ‘AI and Gender: Four Proposals for Future Research’ (link:
