Daniene is a Ph.D. candidate in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. She studies U.S. notice-and-comment rule-making processes for automated driving systems (ADS) from a design perspective. By examining stakeholders' input across six key governance documents, she tracks changing concerns and shifting responses to ADS technologies. Daniene's research pairs data analysis methods such as natural language processing and data visualization with qualitative approaches. Before pursuing her degree in Technology Policy and Innovation, she earned her Masters in Public Policy at Stony Brook. Daniene is a STRIDE Fellow and MACT participant. She is a two term WISE facilitator, Automotive Ethics VIP member, PCLP volunteer, and a recent Scholarly Communication Intern.
