Charlie Harry Smith

DPhil Student at the Oxford Internet Institute

I’m a doctoral student at the Oxford Internet Institute and a member of Balliol College, part of the University of Oxford. My research is supported by the ESRC’s Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership, and focuses on the ethical, social and political issues surrounding digital government and the development of federated identity systems in the UK.

I also hold an MSc in Political Theory from the London School of Economics and a BA in Philosophy from Durham University. Whilst at Durham, I spent a year studying abroad at the University of Hong Kong and later served as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Critique.

When I’m not working, you’ll often find me managing, training and competing for cheerleading competitions in my role as President of the Oxford Sirens.
