Megan Ma is a PhD candidate in Law at the Sciences Po Law School, under the supervision of Professor Horatia Muir Watt.
Megan's research focuses on the significance of language in legal reasoning and interpretation, set against the context of rules-based and data-driven technologies. Her work considers the theoretical frameworks and overlap involved in the philosophy of language and linguistics against logic, computational thinking, and science and technology studies (STS).
Prior to her doctoral studies, Megan had completed her Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics at McGill University and a Master of Laws at Sciences Po Law School, graduating with distinction and cum laude respectively. She is also a lecturer at Sciences Po, teaching courses in Artificial Intelligence and Law, Legal Semantics, and Public Health Law and Policy.
