Salomé Viljoen is a Research Fellow at Cornell Tech's Digital Life Initiative as well as at NYU's Information Law Institute. She is also an Affiliate and former Fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. Salome’s research focuses on the intersection between law, technology and inequality, and draws together multidisciplinary approaches from political economy, law (particularly critical legal thought), and legal philosophy. She studies how the law governing the data economy structures current data collection and sharing practices, and explores the empirical and normative underpinnings of current data regimes as well as proposed alternatives. She also studies the distributive impacts of privacy and cybersecurity law.
Salome was previously an associate at Fenwick and West, LLP, where she worked with technology company clients on a broad variety of matters. She has a JD from Harvard Law School, an MsC from the London School of Economics, and a BA in Political Economy with minors in Mathematics and History from Georgetown University.
