Hi, I’m Marc Canellas.
I’m a defender, engineer, and policy wonk.
I defend people from our society’s messed up legal and political systems and use my technical and policy expertise to fight against the science and technology supercharging injustice.
I’ve fought in Atlanta, the halls of Congress, Harlem, the Southern District of New York, and this summer, I’ll be in the Bronx.
I’m a 2L 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 the Federal Defenders of New York, Southern District, the Vice-Chair of IEEE-USA’s AI Policy Committee, the Vice President 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.
