Divij Joshi

I am a lawyer and researcher studying the intersections of technology, regulation and society. I am presently a Doctoral Researcher at University College London, supervised by Dr. Michael Veale. My research examines the law, politics and governance of platform infrastructures.

As a Mozilla Tech Policy Fellow, I focused on interrogating machine decisions and articulating a fair and equitable vision of ‘AI’, and created the ‘AI Observatory‘. I led research on a project assessing global algorithmic accountability policy, with the AI Now Institute, the Ada Lovelace Institute and the Open Government Partnership. I edit and contribute to SpicyIP, a legal resource with the mission of democratising debates around intellectual property law in India. I am co-editor of the book “A Public Law of Information for India” (forthcoming 2021), published by the Centre for Law and Policy Research. I was a Fellow at the Archives at NCBS, exploring the intersections of law, policy and archival practice in India.

My interests lie at the intersections of the law, policy, and political economy of science and technology.
