Corinne Cath is a doctoral student at the Oxford Internet Institute. Her research focuses on the politics and ethics of Internet governance and the management of the Internet’s infrastructure.

Her other research interests include the impact of Internet policy, technology, and regulation on public interest issues like human rights, civil liberties, and social justice. Her most recent research examines the ethical impact of policy proposals regulating artificial intelligence, the influence of changes in European politics on the technical stability of the Internet, and the responsibility of the technical community towards human rights.
