Brian Tshuma

Brian is an early-stage researcher on data, datafication and datafied societies. He is pursuing doctoral research on Governance of Emerging Technologies in the Global South at London Kings College, UK.

He believes in data as public infrastructure and seeks to contribute to building data utilities which facilitate access, sharing and collaboration around data by a wide range of stakeholders who need it to produce goods, services and other innovations which create social value.

He has also done fellowships on platform governance of online labour (Alexander van Humboldt Institute of Internet and Society, Germany), data stewardship and literature review on data institutions in sub-Saharan Africa (Open Data Institute, London, UK), Digital Identity and Algorithmic Governance (Internet Society Mid-Career Fellowship, USA), as well as trained on the roles and responsibilities of data leaders (Summer School, Caruthers and Jackson, UK).

As a lawyer and former parliamentarian, Brian has experience in the regulation of Information and Communication Technologies in the Global South. He was an inaugural member of the Internet Governance Forum in Zimbabwe, which he co-founded after completing the African School of Internet Governance.
