About Our Guests

Victoria Matthews, MA ’22, is an AI Policy Specialist in the AI Ethics flagship project at Sony AI, where she works on global regulatory issues to make AI systems fair, accountable, and transparent. She is also the founder of Moral IT, an organization that tackles legal, ethical, and policy solutions for more responsible and inclusive technologies.

Michael Castro, Trinity ’21, began his career in the technology industry as a digital product consultant, working with companies ranging from Fortune 500 to startups. Through his diverse experiences, he discovered a passion for the scrappy culture of startups and decided to fully immerse himself in it. He then joined Skylight as a Product Manager, where he developed and executed the product strategy and UX research for the Skylight Calendar and its mobile app, finding product-market fit during his tenure. Michael’s drive for innovation and desire to make an impact in the world ultimately led him to Nymbl Science, a digital healthcare startup on a mission to empower older adults to live confidently and independently while challenging the belief that aging is less. At Nymbl Science, Michael is responsible for driving product development and expanding their digital balance training program to other areas of older adult health. A graduate of Duke University with an interdepartmental degree in Computer Science and Public Policy Analysis, Michael’s unique background and experience in B2B, DTC, hardware development, and e-commerce make him a valuable asset for a high-growth startup. Outside of work, Michael enjoys spending time outdoors with his Australian Shepherd, April.

Laura Coutts, M.Ed. is the Associate Director for Career Services in Duke’s Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. She teaches several professional development courses for master’s and PhD students and is passionate about helping people demystify the job search process. She studied International Studies at the University of Richmond and received her master’s degree from the University of Virginia. Prior to working in the Biostats department, she worked at Loyola University New Orleans and in the main career center at Duke.
