Annette Zimmermann is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Values and Public Policy and affiliated with the Center for Information Technology Policy in the Woodrow Wilson School. Her research interests are located at the intersection of contemporary political philosophy, the ethics of risk, and the philosophy of law. At Princeton, she will be focusing on the use of digital technologies in law enforcement and criminal justice: what are the democratic implications when such technologies distribute risks unfairly, unaccountably, and in a way that erodes citizens’ autonomy and privacy rights? Annette received her D.Phil. (Ph.D.) from the University of Oxford, where she completed a dissertation on democratic theory (“Democratic Enfranchisement Beyond Citizenship: The All-Affected Principle in Theory and Practice”) at Nuffield College. She also holds an M.Phil. from the University of Oxford and a B.A. from the Free University of Berlin.
