About me

Maria_SmallAn economist by training, my work focuses on the social and ethical implications of technology regulation. During the 2020-21 academic year, I will serve as a Technology and Human Rights Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy of the Harvard Kennedy School. In that role, I will explore the social and policy implications of surveillance technology.

After receiving my PhD in Public Policy from the Duke University Sanford School of Public Policy in 2019, I joined the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies as a Postdoctoral Fellow. My PhD and postdoctoral research studied market power in an economy dominated by large intermediaries. It shows how the market power of large intermediaries affects the intended distributional effects of policies meant to protect the environment or workers. This work combined my policy outlook on the economic thinking on the impact of technological innovation gained through the MS in Economics and Management of Innovation and Technology from Università Bocconi, in Milan, Italy.
