Gili Vidan is a Fellow at the Harvard STS Program and a PhD student at the Harvard History of Science Department. Her work addresses the formation of the human subject and the emergence of new sovereignties in the digital environment through issues such as online identity and authentication, cryptocurrencies, and transatlantic cybersecurity regimes. This year she will continue to explore various aspects of digital constitutionalism emerging from an STS Fellows working group which met regularly last year.

Prior to starting her PhD at Harvard, Gili earned a MSc in Social Science of the Internet at Oxford University, where her research focused on cryptocurrencies, mobile technology, and digital geographies, and a BA in Social Studies with a secondary in Computer Science from Harvard College.

Gili’s engagement with the Harvard STS Program began 5 years ago as an undergraduate, when she wrote a thesis on cybersecurity and international relations.
