CV | Short bio

Greetings. In professional life, I am the director of privacy at Stanford's Center for Internet & Society. I direct the Cookie Clearinghouse, also at Stanford CIS. My research focuses on the public policy implications of Internet privacy issues.

Prior affiliations: until November, 2012, I was an initial co-chair of the W3C effort to create a Do Not Track standard. Also in November, 2012, I departed from Mozilla, where I had been a senior privacy researcher (part-time.) My PhD is in Engineering & Public Policy, advised by Lorrie Faith Cranor at Carnegie Mellon, completed after a Master of Science in Public Policy with an internship at the Center for Democracy and Technology.
