What did you do before CCT? I worked in communications and marketing for an international development non-profit.
Why did you choose CCT? I appreciated CCT’s inter-disciplinary approach to understanding the social, political, and economic implications of emerging technologies. I wanted to be able to think about and analyze these issues in a holistic way, incorporating approaches from various fields and traditions.
What surprised you about CCT? The range of student interests and pursuits, while still grounded in CCT’s core areas of study, is really broad. This means you are always learning from your peers
What are you doing now? I am a Senior Policy Analyst at the Future of Privacy Forum, where I lead the organization’s work on questions of privacy and data protection related to immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and brain-computer interfaces (BCIs).
