Dr. Jenifer Sunrise Winter is Associate Professor in the School of Communications at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and Co-Director of the Pacific Information and Communication Technology for Development Collaborative. Her research addresses data governance and ethics associated with the global expansion of the Internet and related technologies (e.g., Internet of Things, big data, artificial intelligence). A main focus is on privacy and data governance in the context of Internet-based data collection and analysis. Related streams of her work illuminate how big data analytics can expose private information, thereby disadvantaging certain individuals or groups, creating unjust power differentials; and examine the underlying norms and values related to personally identifiable information (PII) gathered from the emerging array of ubiquitous embedded information technologies in different contexts and how these data are governed (e.g., privacy and security).
