Eli Dourado

Hi, I’m Eli, and this is my website.

I’m head of global policy and communications at Boom. We’re building a Mach 2.2 commercial airliner. You’ll be able to fly on it in a few short years. It’s going to change the world.

My background is in technology policy. I used to be a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of its Technology Policy Program. I have worked on a wide range of technology policy issues, including aviation, drones, Internet governance, intellectual property, cybersecurity, and cryptocurrency.

Before I got started in tech policy, I thought I wanted to be a professor. I have a PhD in economics from George Mason University.

In my spare time, I tweet and blog, wrangle toddlers, consume great books and TV shows, and seek out flow states.

The best ways to reach me are by email (elidourado@gmail.com) or via Twitter (@elidourado).
