Microsoft Technology Fellow, Penn State Law
Mike Antonino is a Microsoft Post-Graduate Fellow working at Penn State Law’s PILOT Lab. At the PILOT Lab, he works on all of the PILOT Lab's technology policy and law initiatives, including projects related to digital competition, internet consumer protection, and voting security. Mike is a graduate from Penn State Law where he focused his studies on information security law and data privacy law. While completing his JD, Mike worked as a research assistant for Professor Andrea Matwyshyn. It was during this time that Mike created the Facebook EULA of Despair, a fully interactive map of all the companies that receive user data from Facebook, in an effort to uncover just how far that user data travels after it has been handed over.
