The Open Technology Fund has selected 11 individuals to receive Information Controls Fellowships, including UW CSE Ph.D. student Will Scott.
The new Information Controls Fellowship recipients will be working to create solutions and remedies to online censorship and surveillance. They are students, lawyers, and hackers well-established in their respected fields of computer science, software development, social science, and more.
Will’s UW CSE research has included a large number of high-impact projects in this vein. With his Information Control Felowship, he will continue his work on Activist.js, a tool that helps publishers resist censorship by maintaining strong websites that are more resilient to network interference.
