Hello! I’m Raza Panjwani, a recovering attorney and lover of odd trivia, and this is my personal website. You can also find me on LinkedIn, occasionally on Bluesky, and sometimes on Mastodon. I am no longer active on Twitter.
Currently I am Senior Policy Counsel at New America‘s Open Technology Institute where I work on connectivity policy, i.e. ensuring universal (and affordable) access to a free and open internet. Previously I led policy for the hardware design, development and manufacturing divisions of Reality Labs; regulatory strategy at Tidepool, a non-profit developing open source software to improve the lives of people with diabetes (like Tidepool Loop!); public policy at Scotty Labs (acquired by DoorDash), an autonomous vehicle start-up in San Francisco; and was Policy Counsel at Public Knowledge, a Washington, DC-based public interest organization advocating for consumer rights in tech.
