Natasha Tusikov is an assistant professor in criminology in the Department of Social Science at York University and a visiting fellow with the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) at the Australian National University. Her research examines the intersection among law, technology, and regulation, with a particular focus on regulation by Internet intermediaries. Her book, Chokepoints: Global Private Regulation on the Internet (University of California Press, 2016) examines Internet intermediaries’ growing role as regulators for states and non-state actors, especially in the enforcement of intellectual property rights. She is working on a project on knowledge governance funded by a SSHRC Insight Development Grant. Before obtaining her PhD, she was an intelligence analyst and researcher at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa.
