A researcher navigating the depths of Internet privacy and surveillance issues
Introduction
I'm a PhD Candidate at the University of Victoria, where I research privacy and surveillance issues as they relate to telecommunications networks. More specifically, my research interests focus on how privacy is affected by digitally mediated surveillance and the normative implications that such surveillance has in (and on) contemporary Western political systems.

I've published in CTheory, with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and recently contributed to a major Canadian network neutrality report. I also have forthcoming publications with Oxford University Press and University of British Columbia University Press, amongst others. I regularly write about privacy and surveillance issues at my website and communicate regularly over Twitter.
