Waldman, Lysyanskaya, McNamee To Join EPIC Board of Directors
December 13, 2021
Professor Ari Ezra Waldman, Professor Anna Lysyanskaya, and Roger McNamee will join the EPIC Board of Directors in January 2022. Waldman is professor of law and computer science at Northeastern University and director of the School of Law’s Center for Law, Information and Creativity. He researches how law and technology reify traditional structures of power, focusing on privacy, online harassment, misinformation and the LGBTQ community. Lysyanskaya is professor of computer science at Brown University. Her research area is cryptography, and a key theme of her work is balancing privacy with accountability—specifically, allowing users to prove that they are authorized while not revealing any additional information about themselves. McNamee began investing in technology companies in 1982 and co-founded three different investment firms in Silicon Valley. Since April 2017, he has been an activist for reform of the tech industry. The members of the EPIC Board of Directors are chosen from the EPIC Advisory Board, distinguished experts in law, technology, and public policy.
