Bio

Salomé is an Academic Fellow at Columbia Law School. Salomé is also a former Fellow and current Affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

Salomé is interested in how (and whether) the information economy raises new kinds of conceptual, normative (and legal) claims regarding information production and use. She studies how information law structures inequality in the information economy and how alternative legal arrangements may address that inequality. Salomé’s current work focuses on the political economy of social 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 appeared or is forthcoming in legal venues such as the Yale Law Journal and the University of Chicago Law Review, as well as in technical venues such as the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. She also writes essays and other non-academic pieces for places like Nature, the Guardian, and Phenomenal World.

Salomé 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.
