Morgan Currie was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford PACS. She earned a Ph.D. in Information Studies from University of California, Los Angeles in 2017. Her work examines open government data and open records, focusing on the Los Angeles context. Her dissertation is titled “The Datafication of Openness: Open Government Data in Los Angeles.” While at the Digital Civil Society Lab her fellowship project examined “public-private data hybrids”: information assemblages that blur the distinction between public and private spheres and between private enterprise and the broader social good.
In March 2018 Currie joined the University of Edinburgh as a lecturer in Data & Society.
