Researcher/Open Technology Fund Fellow
As an Open Tech Fund Information Controls Fellow, Gabrielle Lim is investigating disinformation and state response in Southeast Asia. Drawing from political science and ethnography, Gabrielle’s research consists of two objectives: 1) to analyze the tools and tactics, both technical and non-technical, used by state and non-state actors in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia to manipulate the media ecosystem, and 2) to identify the threats facing Internet and information access resulting from state responses to such manipulation attempts.
In 2018, she received a Masters of Global Affairs from the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto, where she focused on counterterrorism, global security, and cybersecurity. Before coming to Data & Society, Gabrielle worked at Citizen Lab.
