Meet Dhruv Mehrotra
2017 – 2018
Who are you?
I am an activist and engineer who thinks about networks, power, and policy. I’m currently a Researcher at the Risk Econ Lab at New York University where I’m working on open-source cellular networks with Saycel.
What are you working on?
At Eyebeam I plan on working on projects that challenge the corporate consolidation of the internet. How can we trust a network that actively seeks to exploit and undermine our interests? My project, the Othernet, is a vision of another type of network – one that exists alongside the internet but serves the community in which it lives.
What are you most excited about?
Working with the other residents to build things that make the world a bit more fair.
