Daniel Susser


A philosopher by training, I work at the intersection of technology, ethics, and policy. My research aims to highlight normative issues in the design, development, and use of information technology, and to clarify conceptual issues that stand in the way of addressing them through law and policy. At the moment, I'm especially focused on questions about privacy, transparency, and online influence.

I am an assistant professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology, a research associate and core faculty member in the Rock Ethics Institute, and an affiliate faculty member in the Philosophy Department at Penn State University.

From 2016-18, I was an assistant professor in the Philosophy Department at San Jose State University. Before that, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Information Law Institute at New York University's School of Law, a member of the Institute's Privacy Research Group, and a visiting scholar in NYU's Department of Media, Culture, and Communication.
