This week, Class 4 Fellow and Fellow Highlights series host Meri Baghdasaryan sits down with David Morar, Ph.D. David is a researcher and public policy professional, and a three-time ICANN Fellow. His work spans the spectrum of technology policy issues, both nationally and internationally, from privacy and open data to ethics and content issues (e.g. disinformation, moderation). David is currently a Senior Policy Analyst with New America’s Open Technology Institute, a visiting scholar at the Schar School of Policy and Government, and a Fellow at the Digital Interests Lab, among other affiliations.
Meri and David chat about the dynamics behind tech policy making in the US and Europe, David’s engagement with Internet Governance communities, particularly at ICANN, and the importance of not self-eliminating, but showing up and contributing, as you learn and expand your expertise.
