about me

My name is (obviously) David Morar and I am a tech policy practitioner and researcher. I am a Senior Policy Analyst, (and previously Policy Fellow) with New America’s Open Technology Institute, and a Visiting Scholar with the Schar School of Policy and Government.

My current affiliations include: Fellow of the Internet Law and Policy Foundry, Guest Researcher at the Hans Bredow Institut, Managing Fellow at the Digital Interests Lab, Affiliate Researcher at the Center for Information, Technology, and Public Life (CITAP) at UNC, and a Visiting Professor at the FGV Center for Technology & Society. I serve as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Communication Technology, and on the Executive Committee of the Non-Commercial Stakeholder Group at ICANN.

Most recently, I was a PostDoctoral Data Policy Fellow at NYU Steinhardt, a visiting scholar at the Digital Trade and Data Governance Hub at the Elliott School of International Affairs, and Policy Manager for Data4Democracy. On top of that, I have also collaborated with the New America Public Interest Technology project, the Better Business Bureau National Programs, and the R Street Institute. Check out my projects and areas of work, and my CV.

You can find me, very easily, by googling my name, or seeing my social media presence.
