Hey there, I'm Sarah.
I work at the intersection of tech, data, and human rights.

I'm a security and privacy researcher. My work lies at the intersection of tech, human rights, and transformative justice.
I work with groups around the world on security, privacy, and internet freedom. Most recently, I was the VP of Security and Chief Technology Officer at the Open Technology Fund, an organization that funds projects, research, and technology focused on countering censorship and surveillance. I've been a 2023 New America Fellow, a 2017-2018 Ford Mozilla Open Web Fellow, and an Internet Freedom Fellow, and am a technical advisor for the Internet Freedom Festival, the Human Rights Foundation, Global Journalist Security. You can find me somewhere in the cloud.
