People Dr Joss Wright

Co-Director, Oxford Martin Programme on the Illegal Wildlife Trade

Senior Research Fellow

Joss Wright is a Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, where his research focuses on the measurement and analysis of internet censorship, and on the design of privacy enhancing technologies.

More broadly, Joss' work focuses on interdisciplinary approaches to the measurement and analysis of technologies that exert, subvert, or resist control over information. He has a particular interest in bridging the gaps between technically-focused analyses of security and privacy technologies, and their broader social and political implications.

In addition to his work on censorship and privacy enhancing technologies, Joss has also provided advice to the European Commission, as well as a number of EU research projects, on the social, legal and ethical impacts of security technologies. He has written on privacy, social media and online activism for the Guardian and Observer newspapers, amongst others, and his work on measuring internet censorship has been featured in New Scientist magazine. He has also advised the UK Parliamentary Science and Technology Committee on the implications of surveillance legislation.
