Katrina Grace Geddes

JSD Student

Katrina Geddes is a JSD student at NYU. She holds an LLM in International Intellectual Property Law from Cambridge University, a Master's in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of New South Wales, Sydney. An Australian lawyer, she has clerked at the Supreme Court of New South Wales (Court of Appeal) and worked at King & Wood Mallesons, Sydney, prior to moving overseas to work at the United Nations Development Programme, Médecins Sans Frontières, and as a Research Fellow at Harvard Law School. Katrina's research interests include international intellectual property law, international human rights law, and international development.

Research: Katrina's research will examine the capacity of user-oriented copyright norms to democratize and diversify civic discourse on digital platforms and thereby promote the development of robust civil societies in sub-Saharan Africa. This interdisciplinary research will draw on the democratic copyright paradigm, international human rights law (including freedom of expression and the right to participate in cultural life), theories of the developmental state and trends towards digital authoritarianism, the growth of user-generated content and automated anti-piracy algorithms, and global administrative law and the changing role of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
