I am Anna Lauren Hoffmann, a trans woman and scholar working at the intersections of data, technology, culture, and ethics. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher with the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley.
I research and write on issues in information, data, identity, and ethics, with particular attention to the ways in which discourses and design of technology, information systems, and big data can promote or hinder important human values like respect and justice.
Beyond my scholarly research and publications, I actively contribute to broader public discussions of ethics, information, data, social media, identity, and privacy. I also produce creative works and reflective essays on music, culture, and identity.
