Salomé is an Assistant Professor of Law at Michigan Law School, where she teaches courses on contracts, information privacy, and law and tech. She thinks about how information law structures inequality and how alternative legal arrangements might address that inequality. Salomé’s current work is on the political economy of social data (i.e., data about people). This work interrogates what legal status social data enjoys, what legal interests it implicates, and how the law does (and should) regulate its creation and use. Salomé’s academic work has appeared in the Yale Law Journal and the University of Chicago Law Review Online, as well as in technical venues such as the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. She also writes essays and articles for places like Nature, the Guardian, Logic Magazine and Phenomenal World.
