About this blog:
This is my personal blog. It’s nominally focused on issues at the intersection of law, policy, and technology, but I suspect I will deviate from those topics more than occasionally. With that said, here are the most important facts about this blog: 1.) this blog is not legal advice; 2.) all views expressed are my own and not those of my employer(s) past, present or future. Some posts may be cross posted (with permission) from other blogs.
I’m an attorney with a focus on emerging technologies, particularly in the data analytics space. I currently work on the legal and privacy and civil liberties teams at Palantir Technologies. I was previously a teaching fellow at the Berkeley Samuelson Law, Technology, and Public Policy Clinic, a policy advisor at the California Department of Justice, and a litigator at O’Melveny & Myers. I’m also a Non-Resident Fellow at Georgetown’s Center on National Security and the Law, where I previously served as a visiting scholar. You can find my full CV, including more specific examples of my work at www.babaksiavoshy.org.
