Corinne Cath


Dr. Corinne Cath is an Affiliate at the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy.

Corinne is an anthropologist interested in the politics of Internet infrastructure.

Her PhD research analyses the culture of the often-opaque organisations that enable the technical functioning of the Internet, inevitably acting as political gatekeepers. Within that context, she focuses on the ability of human rights and civil liberties activists, to participate on par with industry engineers to shape the internet’s underpinning and the data that flows across it.

Her professional interests include Internet Governance, Internet Freedom, Data Activism, Science and Technology Studies, Digital Anthropology, and bridging the divide between academics and practitioners.

Corinne currently works as the Vice President of Research at the Open Tech Fund. Prior to finishing her PhD, Corinne worked as a program officer for the “Digital Team” of human rights NGO ARTICLE19 and as a policy advisor for the US House of Representatives in Washington D.C.

Corinne has a BA in anthropology and an MA in International Relations from the University of Utrecht, and an MSc in Social Science of the Internet from the University of Oxford.
