Hertie School of Governance

Shoshannah Richards – Jamaica

Academic background: In April 2015, I became a DAAD Public Policy and Good Governance scholar. As a Master of Public Policy student at the Hertie School of Governance, my research is focused on how the digital economy is reshaping society and politics. I have written papers on the bounded rationality of online privacy behavior, network neutrality in the European Union and how the Internet of Things affects the retail industry. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at Barnard College in New York. I also studied in Rennes, France with School Year Abroad and attended boarding school in Lakeville, Connecticut.
