Salomé is a current Affiliate (and former Fellow) at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. She is also a joint postdoctoral fellow at the NYU Law School Information Law Institute and at the Cornell Tech Digital Life Initiative. 

Salomé studies how information law (particularly contract law and privacy law) structure inequality in the information economy and how alternative legal regimes may address that inequality. She uses empirical and normative analysis both to understand how information creates value and risk and to develop regulatory alternatives attentive to these particularities. 

Salomé’s current work focuses on the political economy of data. This work explores how the laws governing the data economy structure the incentives of data collection and the downstream uses of data-intensive technologies. In particular, she analyzes how such downstream effects may reproduce social oppression and amplify economic and relational inequality. 

Salomé’s work has been featured in both legal publications, such as the University of Chicago Law Review, and technical publications, such as the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. She also occasionally publishes in popular venues like The Guardian. 

Salome was previously an associate at Fenwick and West, LLP, where she worked with technology company clients on a broad array of information law and corporate matters. She has a JD from Harvard Law School, an MSc from the London School of Economics, and a BA in Political Economy from Georgetown University.
