Monica Bulger

Senior Fellow
Future of Privacy Forum

Dr. Monica Bulger is a Senior Fellow at the Future of Privacy Forum where where she works with state and local partners to develop and curate student privacy training resources for K-12 schools. To check out FPF's resources addressing practical strategies for complying with state and federal privacy laws, visit ferpasherpa.org.

At FPF, Dr. Bulger studies privacy trade-offs of student data use. What does "privacy" mean and how does it apply to students? What are the benefits and unintended consequences of schools collecting and using student data? To explore these questions, Dr. Bulger is conducting national interviews of families, school staff, and state and federal privacy officers.

She also examines how student understandings of their privacy rights intersect with media literacy and digital citizenship. Dr. Bulger has studied youth rights in digital spaces for UNICEF, the Oxford Internet Institute, Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, Data & Society Research Institute, Fundación Ceibal, and the European Commission. Her work for FPF is supported through a grant from the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative.
