She has spoken, written, and taught on war crimes, genocide, crimes against humanity, truth and reconciliation commissions, emerging technologies, behavioral economics and behavioral science, political reconciliation, the future of autonomous weaponry and war, post-conflict and transitional justice, artificial intelligence, and the future of truth, democracy, and humanity.
