Picture of Richmond

Richmond Wong is an Assistant Professor of Digital Media at Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Media, and Communication. He directs the Creating Ethics Infrastructures Lab where his research seeks to create social, cultural, and organizational environments that can support technologists and designers in ethical decisionmaking.

This includes creating design approaches that propose alternate ways to consider human values, supporting worker and community-led actions, improving organizational ethics review practices, and understanding the role of law and policy. Recent projects include studying the technology workers’ organizational practices related to ethics, and creating design activities to help people talk through issues related to privacy and surveillance.

Richmond's work utilizes qualitative and design-based methods, drawing from critically-oriented human computer interaction, science & technology studies, and speculative and critical design. He completed his PhD at the University of California Berkeley School of Information, a postdoc at the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, and has undergraduate degrees in Information Science and Science & Technology Studies from Cornell University.
