Dubbed the „Ralph Nader of the Internet“ by Wired and one of Politico’s top „thinkers, doers and visionaries transforming American politics“, Christopher Soghoian is „the most prominent of a new breed of activist technology researchers“ (The Economist), „who have risen to prominence by showing how tedious technical flaws can affect ordinary people“.
Soghoian is the Principal Technologist with the Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project at the American Civil Liberties Union. He is also a Visiting Fellow at Yale Law School’s Information Society Project and a TED Senior Fellow.
Soghoian completed his Ph.D. at Indiana University in 2012, which focused on the role that Internet and telephone companies play in enabling government surveillance of their customers.
