Daniel S. Griffin

I’m a Ph.D. student at UC-Berkeley’s School of Information where I research ‘search’ and ‘misinformation’ and am a co-director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Technology, Society & Policy.

I finished the Master of Information Management and Systems (MIMS) program from the same school in 2016.

Prior to graduate school I was an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army. As an undergraduate, I studied philosophy at Whitworth University. In my free time I enjoy trail running.


What are search results? What are the human rights obligations of search engines?

Search engines no longer merely shape public understanding and access to the content of the World Wide Web: they shape public understanding of the world. . . .
