Kat Geddes

Kat Geddes is a JSD candidate at NYU Law, focusing on the capacity of user-oriented copyright norms to democratize discourse on digital platforms and promote the development of robust civil societies, particularly in developing countries, to counteract both digital authoritarianism and algorithmic copyright enforcement. She is particularly interested in the free speech and digital labor implications of the algorithmic copyright adjudication employed by social media platforms. Prior to joining NYU, Kat was a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and a Research Fellow at Harvard Law School, where she worked on patent law reform and access to medicines in sub-Saharan Africa. She has previously worked at the UN, Doctors Without Borders, and King & Wood Mallesons. She holds an L.L.M. in intellectual property law from Cambridge University, a Master's in Public Policy from Harvard University, and a Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Commerce from the University of New South Wales, Sydney.
