I am a journalist, researcher and expert on how technology affects people’s lives and rights. I am a senior editor with Coda Story. I also write Coda’s weekly Authoritarian Tech newsletter.


I am on the board of directors of Monument Lab and I serve on the advisory council of the Open Technology Fund.

From 2014-2019, I ran the Advox project at Global Voices, an international media organization of bloggers, journalists and activists from more than 170 countries. After that, I was the projects director at Ranking Digital Rights, a research organization that evaluates big tech companies on human rights standards. Other previous affiliations include the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, Citizens and Technology Lab at Cornell University, and the Center for Democracy & Technology.

I’ve written for The New York Times, The Guardian, Quartz, Tech Policy Press, Global Voices, Slate, and Americas Quarterly. I don’t do much blogging these days, but I can be found on Twitter at least once a week.

My views are mine alone.
