Simogne Hudson's research interests are based in the confluence of Black feminist thought and Science and Technology Studies, particularly regarding the epistemological underpinnings of technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Simogne holds a B.A. from Portland State University in Women’s Studies. Her undergraduate work in Women’s Studies focused on the co-construction of knowledge and racialized gender performativity in physical vs. virtual spaces, particularly makeup tutorials and associated communities on YouTube. While at Portland State, Simogne worked in the University Studies department teaching mentored inquiry sessions for first year students in a course on race and social justice, with a focus on science fiction narratives in popular culture. Prior to her start at USC, Simogne worked at Oregon Humanities assisting with the design, implementation and evaluation of reflective conversation-based programming across Oregon.
