Myesha Jemison



A Bit About Me

Myesha is a researcher, writer and creative based in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. She is also a graduate student fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence. Myesha’s current doctoral research examines the use of digital technologies in sub-Saharan Africa, showing that the influence of media manipulation and fake news in elections in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa have raised significant concerns about data privacy, surveillance, digital media, AI, and the rights and policies associated with each of these issues. On the one hand her project examines the ways that Africa has become a testing ground for technologies developed by cybersecurity and surveillance firms in China, Britain, Israel and other nations. On the other hand it analyses the critical policy issues this has raised, with African nations questioning EU models of digital governance.
