The Center on Science & Technology Policy at Duke University will explore the impact of emerging technologies on our society and develop new approaches for regulating those technologies.
The center, a newly launched collaboration with The Duke Initiative for Science & Society and Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy, will serve as an interdisciplinary hub for science and technology policy analysis, while also fostering deeper ties between the university and local and global tech communities.
Directing the center is Matt Perault, who will have a joint faculty appointment in the Sanford School and in Science & Society. Perault previously served as a director of public policy at Facebook, where he led the company’s global public policy planning efforts on issues such as competition, law enforcement and human rights, and oversaw public policy for WhatsApp, Oculus and Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research. Prior to joining Facebook, Perault was counsel at the Congressional Oversight Panel. He holds graduate degrees from Duke’s Sanford School and Harvard Law School.
