Hannah Ellis

Hannah works at the intersection of technology and human rights, helping both tech and non-tech companies identify and address human rights impacts associated with the development and use of technology and effectively incorporate human rights best practices.

Prior to joining BSR, Hannah worked at the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) as a technology strategy associate. At HRF, she facilitated conversations between HRF’s community of activists and tech companies in an effort to minimize the adverse impacts of certain technologies on vulnerable populations, as well as connected activists with technical tools to safeguard their work. Before HRF, Hannah was a research assistant at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

Hannah holds a BA in Political Science with a minor in Arabic from UC Berkeley.
