Bryan H. Choi
Professor Bryan H. Choi is jointly appointed with the College of Law and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. His research focuses on the legal regulation of ubiquitous computing and ubiquitous data. In particular, his work investigates how cyber systems disrupt legal systems, and in turn how legal constraints can channel and elevate the development of cyber systems.
Professor Choi’s current work explores the interaction between the tort liability regime and cyberphysical systems such as self-driving cars. He has also written about data privacy through a series of lenses including criminal procedure (“For Whom the Data Tolls,” published in the Cardozo Law Review); intellectual property (“A Prospect Theory of Privacy”, published in the Idaho Law Review); and anonymity (“The Anonymous Internet,” published in the Maryland Law Review).
Prior to joining Ohio State, Professor Choi was a Faculty Fellow at the Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition (CTIC) at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Before that, he taught at New York Law School, and served as the Director of Law and Media at the Information Society Project (ISP) at Yale Law School.
Professor Choi received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Harvard University and his law degree from Harvard Law School. Before law school, he worked as a software developer on Army Knowledge Online, the largest social media platform before Facebook. Following law school, he practiced law at a firm in Washington, D.C., and clerked for the Honorable Leonard I. Garth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and for the Honorable William C. Bryson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
