I’m a research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of its Technology Policy Program. I study and write about issues like Internet governance, intellectual property, cybersecurity, and cryptocurrency through the lens of political economy. My writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, The Guardian, Ars Technica, and Wired, among other outlets.
In 2012, I co-created WCITLeaks.org, an ITU transparency website that hosted leaked documents related to the World Conference on International Telecommunication (WCIT). I also served on the US delegation to the WCIT and continued to advise the State Department on ITU matters. For our work on WCITLeaks, Jerry Brito and I won an IP3 award from Public Knowledge in the Internet Protocol category.
