The past two years have seen an explosion of privacy scandals ranging from data breaches to the manipulation of elections – and mobile apps have been right at the heart of them. How did our work become so badly abused, what might we have done differently, and how can we put things right for the future?

We are people of enormous power and influence over the open web. As a tech policy and regulation specialist, I empower you to use that power wisely. I support digital professionals in understanding the political, legal, and regulatory issues which impact their work, assist them to participate constructively in the regulatory sphere, and represent them directly to governments. I advocate for an open web built around international standards of human rights, privacy, accessibility, and freedom of expression. I fight for edge cases, the little guys, and the big pictures. Let’s talk.
