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 now, I’m 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, a legal intern with Brooklyn Defender Services‘ Forensic Science Practice, the Vice-Chair of IEEE-USA’s AI Policy Committee, a Board Member of Rights over Tech, and a member of the ABA’s AI Legal Ethics Working Group.
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.
