Lisa Gutermuth is Program Manager at the research project Ranking Digital Rights, which ranks Internet and telecommunications companies on their policies and commitments with respect to freedom of expression and privacy. The Ranking Digital Rights Index provides not only a comparative mapping of how companies are performing in their respect of privacy and freedom of expression, but also has developed a methodology that serves as a baseline of how companies’ commitments, disclosures, and policies can be comparatively evaluated.
Lisa completed her masters degree at Humboldt University of Berlin and her bachelors degree at University of New Hampshire. Working with a range of different organisations over the years, her work has also touched on remote sensing, mapping, digital security and data visualization.
