Bryce is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at TILT. He completed his Ph.D. in Information Science at the University of Washington’s Information School in Seattle, Washington, USA in 2015, and his J.D. at the University of California, Davis School of Law in 2010. He is a licensed California attorney (inactive), a former Google Policy Fellow, and a documentary filmmaker (his most recent film documents humanitarian and artistic response to migrant deaths along the U.S.-Mexico border, online at www.humanitarianfilm.org). Bryce’s academic research is primarily focused on empirical and legal questions at the intersections of criminal procedure, policing, irregular immigration, privacy, surveillance, and access to information. In his research, he utilizes both qualitative and quantitative social science methodologies as well as legal research and analytic argumentation (philosophical method). Recent and on-going projects include research into the adoption of police body cameras, the public disclosure of automated license (number) plate recognition databases, citizen video of police conduct, information seeking and technology use by undocumented/irregular immigrants, and the experiences of undocumented immigrants with, and perceptions of, state and private surveillance along international borders.
