Ari Ezra Waldman

Professor of Law and Computer Science, Northeastern University

Ari Ezra Waldman is, as of July 1, 2020, Professor of Law and Computer Science at Northeastern University. He researches how law and technology entrench traditional structures of power, with particular focus on privacy, technology and social justice, and law and technology issues affecting the LGBTQ community. His second book, forthcoming from Cambridge University Press, "Privacy's Vicious Cycle and the Banality of Surveillance," shows how the information industry has used its power over discourse, compliance, and design to ensure that new technologies do not protect our privacy. He is a widely-published author and frequent speaker on privacy, cyberharassment, and other issues. He earned a Ph.D. in sociology from Columbia University, a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and an B.A. from Harvard College.
