Corinne Cath is a doctoral student at the Oxford Internet Institute. Her research focuses on the politics and ethics of Internet governance and the management of the Internet’s infrastructure.

Her other research interests include the impact of Internet policy, technology, and regulation on public interest issues like human rights, civil liberties and social justice. Her most recent research examines the ethical impact of policy proposals regulating artificial intelligence, the influence of changes in European politics on the technical stability of the Internet, and the responsibility of the technical community towards human rights.

She works with various civil society organizations, governments and businesses providing policy guidance on the ethical and political issues arising out of new technologies.

Prior to joining the OII for her DPhil, she worked as a program officer for the “Digital Team” of human rights NGO ARTICLE 19, and as policy advisor for the US House of Representatives in Washington D.C.
