Dr. Anne L. Washington is an Assistant Professor of Data Policy at the NYU Steinhardt School. Her expertise on public sector information currently addresses the emerging governance needs of data science. The National Science Foundation has funded her research multiple times including a prestigious 5-year NSF career grant on open government data. Her work draws on both interpretive research methods and computational text analysis. As a public interest technologist, I tackle research problems that contribute to public policy conversations about governance in the digital era.
