Jacqueline Ahn

Jacqueline Ahn Yang is currently a legal specialist at IBM, assisting developers and business teams to navigate the world of open source software licensing. Prior to IBM, she interned at Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and New America Foundation. She is a classic case of a “third culture kid”, who spent majority of her formative years in Asia before coming to the States, which informed her interests in global tech issues such as cross-border data flow and international IP & free speech frameworks.

She receive her J.D. from Cardozo School of Law, where she was a Squadron Fellow in Law, Media, and Society. She also holds an M.A. from Georgetown University’s Communication, Culture & Technology Program, and a B.Sc. in engineering from Columbia University.

In her spare time, she likes crawling through online subculture message boards under the excuse of “cultural studies.” She’s convinced she’s a dog person, though she has never owned a dog before.
