    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Juliana Friend is a medical anthropologist studying the intersection of tech policy and health equity. Drawing on expertise in digital health, sexual and reproductive health, intimate partner violence, and privacy ethics, Dr. Friend explores the role of digital security in combating sexual and reproductive health disparities. Her work has investigated how sexually stigmatized communities in Senegal navigate digital privacy risks. Her new research explores digital surveillance and reproductive privacy. She was recently a member of the Alternative Digital Futures project at the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC), where she facilitated transnational, multi-lingual dialogue between digital justice activists about privacy and health disparities. Drawing on participatory research methods, Dr. Friend's work amplifies the perspectives of medically underserved communities on how ethics of consent and equity can be embedded into online platforms.
