Steven Kelts is a long-time ethics educator. He has twenty years of experience working with undergraduates, including in residential education environments and intensive, selective seminars. His research is on the history and uses of market ideas, including theories of the firm and corporate organization. He consults in the private sector with companies looking to synergize their market value with their ethical values, and to develop curricula to help their employees navigate ethical pitfalls in their organizational culture.

"My own journey through academia has been quite a ride! Delighted to help Princeton grad students think through all the pathways open to them, and the meaningful work available.

I've seen the A.I. Ethics cohort transform how graduate students think about their future careers—both in academia, and in the growing space of corporate research on the ethical implications of A.I. Each year it's an impressive inter-disciplinary group, bringing computer scientists, engineers, sociologists, psychologists, legal scholars and others together with ethicists. And we all leave the room with new questions to ask about our own disciplines!"

I have participated in the following GradFUTURES Programs: Ethics of AI GradFUTURES Learning Cohort.
