My work on privacy stretched throughout a majority of my professional career. I am currently a Senior Policy Analyst with New America’s Open Technology Institute focusing on data protection and privacy among others. While there, I lead the PrivacyNOW coalition, have authored op-eds and blog posts about comprehensive federal privacy legislation, and have helped spearhead OTI’s comments to the Federal Trade Commission’s ANPRM on commercial surveillance.
I first worked on privacy while a Research Fellow with the Future of Privacy Forum in 2015. While there, I researched biometric technology privacy and education. I also assisted FPF with the planning and running of a National Science Foundation day-long workshop on Ethical Data Review Processes, as well as helping with other events, meetings and grant-writing activities.
With my PhD colleague Lauren McCarthy, I also co-authored a piece on autonomous vehicle privacy, presented as a poster at the Automated Vehicles Symposium 2016 in San Francisco.
More recently, also with Dr. McCarthy, I wrote a conference paper on data trusts in governing smart cities, presented at the 2020 North American Meeting of the Regional Science Association International in San Diego.
