Dr Keren Weitzberg is a researcher, writer, and historian-ethnographer with 10+ years of experience in East Africa conducting fieldwork in cross-cultural, multilingual settings. She is also a Lecturer (Teaching) in History and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies at University College London. Keren works at the intersection of science and technology studies, migration studies, and critical race studies, examining problematics related to mobility and digital identity systems. In recent years, she has become increasingly focused on the human rights and ethical implications of digital technologies, especially biometrics. She is particularly attuned to the impacts of biometric and digital identity systems on migrants, nomadic populations, refugees, and border communities, who have historically struggled to access identity documents.
