Caitlin Corrigan

I have a strong interest in all aspects of applied research and promoting the transformation of research results into policy practice. In my current role as Executive Director for the Institute for Ethics in Artificial Intelligence (IEAI) at the Technical University of Munich, I am involved in the entire research pipeline, from developing funding partners, research teams and project methodologies, to leading research projects, to making sure our research findings are published and accessible.

I am also a co-founder of the consulting firm – The Research Group for Sustainable Impacts. We specialize in helping organizations explore, enhance, and evaluate the impact, sustainability and inclusivity of their programming using innovative, informed, and accessible research techniques. We are always looking for new projects. ( As part of my interest in inclusivity, I am also part of the Munich City team for Women in AI (

I hold a PhD in Public and International Affairs from the University of Pittsburgh. My research interests revolve around sustainable development, particularly concerning good governance, public policy and corporate social responsibility. I am particularly interested in sustainable management of extractive industries in Sub-Saharan Africa as well. I have conducted fieldwork in Botswana and South Africa and have extensive research experience, working on projects that use methods ranging from statistical analysis, to program evaluation and qualitative text analysis. I have published several academic articles and policy relevant research and reports on these topics.
