Privacy Rights in the Digital Era

This summer I will be continuing to provide research assistance for Professor Rule’s book that discusses privacy rights in the digital era. I began working with Professor Rule in the Fall of 2018 when the book was still in the outline stage. This summer I will be helping Professor Rule with Chapters 3-6 of his book. The books seeks to reveal threats to online personal data and then recommend steps of action. My research focuses on privacy related laws, public opinion polls as well as violations and misuse of personal data. Given that the book has not been published, I can not fully disclose the contents of the book.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you so much for providing me with the opportunity to continue my research over the summer. It means a lot that you and my professor believed in my research abilities. This summer I had the opportunity to dive even further into an investigation that I have been working on for the past year. It was very rewarding to find answers to some of our questions which has allowed us to move on to the next chapters in the book. Working on the book has not only opened my eyes to privacy issues, but it will also hopefully encourage Americans across the United States to stand up for their rights once it is published.
