Salome Viljoen

Fellow, Columbia Law School

Salomé is an incoming Assistant Professor of Law at Michigan Law School. She is interested in how information law structures inequality and how alternative legal arrangements might address that inequality. Salomé’s current work is on the political economy of social data. Here, she is interested in the legal theories of social data: what legal status social data enjoys, what legal interest it implicates, and how the law does (and should) regulate its creation and use. Salomé’s academic has appeared in the Yale Law Journal and the University of Chicago Law Review Online, as well as in technical venues such as the ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. She also writes essays and articles for places like Nature, the Guardian, Logic Magazine and Phenomenal World.

Evaluation Panel Members

Evaluation Panel judges will score and provide feedback on the applications assigned to them using the scoring rubric, and each valid application will receive five sets of reviews with scores that have been statistically normalized to ensure a level playing field. Applicants are encouraged to use this valuable feedback to strengthen and refine their solutions as they implement projects and secure other funding sources.  

Meet the judges featured here, and more Evaluation Panel members will be added in the next few months.
