Dr. Sachil Singh

Sachil is post-doctoral fellow at the SSC, starting January 1, 2020. He will be collating research findings from all three streams of the SSHRC-funded Big Data Surveillance (BDS) research project, led by Professor David Lyon, and will play a major role in organizing a final research conference, to take place in 2021. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Queen's University, where he teaches the department's largest course, Introduction to Sociology (SOCY122). He is an Associated Faculty member of the Surveillance Studies Centre and does work on algorithmic racism, which he has examined in credit scoring, and is presently researching in healthcare. He is working on a project with Prof. Valerie Steeves on Clinical Decision Support Systems, which are point-of-care tools that healthcare professionals use to inform patient diagnosis and treatment. Because these tools are replete with pithy conclusions that link medical conditions to race/ethnicity, Sachil is also conducting interviews with clinicians to examine if these conclusions inform patient diagnosis and treatment.
