IPRI Student Studies the Intersection of Technology and Public Policy

2019-12-02 - 1 minute read

Marc Aidinoff, an IPRI student, recipient of the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy Grant, and PhD candidate in History/Anthropology/Science, Technology, and Society (HASTS) seeks to answer important questions about the intersection of technology and public policy. For instance, in a recent MIT News article Aidinoff asks, “What does it mean when civil rights become about access to computers and the internet? When lack of internet access is considered a form of poverty? These are really big questions and I haven’t been able to get them out of my system.”

To get answers to these questions, Aidinoff relies on his interdisciplinary research, experience as a U.S. administration policy advisor, and more.
