Director, Stanford’s Program on Platform Regulation
Daphne Keller directs the Program on Platform Regulation at Stanford’s Cyber Policy Center. Her work examines Internet regulation with a focus on users’ rights and the public interest. She has published both academically and in popular press; testified and participated in legislative processes; and taught and lectured extensively in the U.S. and around the world. Her recent work focuses on legal protections for users’ free expression rights when state and private power intersect, particularly through platforms’ enforcement of Terms of Service or use of algorithmic ranking and recommendations. Until 2015 Daphne was Associate General Counsel for Google, where she led work on intermediary liability and had primary responsibility for the company’s search products. She worked on groundbreaking litigation and legislation around the world and counseled both overall product development and individual content takedown decisions.
