Arthur Borem

Hi! I'm a third year Computer Science PhD student in security and privacy at the University of Chicago advised by Blase Ur. My research identifies and attempts to address power and information imbalances that occur between online platforms and their consumers. I've been working with topics like online targeted advertising, gig work platforms, but the focus of my research has been on studying how data subject rights (e.g., those guaranteed by GDPR or CCPA) are implemented. Before my PhD, I was a software engineer at Asana and before that I earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Brown University.
