Hello! I’m Mike McKenna (he/him 🌈) and I’m a data scientist in AI-driven experimentation at CVS Health. I’m an attorney too.

In normal times, I research social determinants of health, algorithmic bias auditing, and causal inference. These days, I lead CVS’s Covid-19 vaccine demand forecasting and design data-driven equity initatives. This work forms part of Operation Warp Speed and I work closely with the White House and the CDC.

Some other work I am proud of is Cellophane, a toolkit for algorithmic bias detection under uncertainty; and organizing to hold Google accountable for mistreating its ethical AI team.

I have spent most of the last 6 years in housing co-operatives. This webseries really captures the good, the bad, and the downright weird, of the experience.

To chill, I enjoy riding along the East Bay Bike Path, snuggling with Nina the mutt, zine-making, and cooking food which reminds me of home 🇦🇺 🇦🇺 🇦🇺.
