Hi, I’m Marc Canellas.

I’m a defender, engineer, and policy wonk.

I defend people from our society’s oppressive legal and political systems and use my technical and policy expertise to fight against carceral technology.

I’ve fought in Atlanta, the halls of Congress, Harlem, the Southern District of New York, the Bronx, and in Brooklyn.

I’m a 3L at NYU School of Law, a fellow of the Jacobson Leadership Program in Law and Business Program, a Cybersecurity Service Scholar, and a Board Member of Rights over Tech. I am also the Chair of the IEEE-USA’s AI Policy Committee.

Before law school, I was a Congressional staffer for Rep. Derek Kilmer (WA-6) working on issues ranging from space, science, and AI, to justice, surveillance, and immigration.

And before that I earned my PhD in aerospace and cognitive engineering at Georgia Tech.

 I write, speak, and even tweet from time to time.
