Jasmine McNealy is an attorney and an assistant professor in the department of telecommunication at the University of Florida where she is a affiliate of the STEM Translational Research Center and the UF Informatics institute.

Her research investigates issues of ownership, access, creation, and control of information in its various forms in an attempt to understand the conflicts and solutions, both cultural and structural, that arise in response to these conflicts. While at Berkman, she will examine the rise in community-based surveillance literacy and anti-surveillance advocacy groups, focusing on the cultural, political, behavioral, and legal factors that shape their strategies and tactics.
