Dr. Travis Hall is a Telecommunications Policy Analyst for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration's Office of Policy and Development, focusing on Surveillance and Consumer Privacy. His portfolio includes IoT, UAS, and Blockchain, and he recently successfully concluded two privacy multistakeholder processes. He has a PhD from the Department of Media, Culture and Communication from New York University, and his dissertation research focused on the cultural contexts and histories of state identification programs, specifically those that use bodies as the media of identity (biometrics, tattoos). He has acted as a consultant for advocacy groups, academic institutes, and private companies on the technical and policy details of identification and the potential impacts of these technologies on privacy rights. Before joining the Department of Commerce, Travis taught at American University and was a research fellow at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society in Berlin, Germany. He received his MA in International Communications and BA in International Relations from American University.
