An expert in patent law, innovation policy, and information privacy law, Katherine Strandburg began her career as a theoretical physicist at Argonne National Laboratory. Her research considers the implications of user and collaborative innovation for patent law and of “big data” for privacy law. Governing Knowledge Commons (coedited with B. Frischmann and M. Madison, 2014) reflects ongoing research involving case studies of commons-based innovation. Other recent scholarship includes “Membership Lists, Metadata and Freedom of Association’s Specificity Requirement” (2014, I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society), “Free Fall: The Online Market’s Consumer Preference Disconnect” (2013, University of Chicago Legal Forum), and “Progress and Competition in Design” (with M. McKenna, 2014, Stanford Technology Law Review). Strandburg’s brief on behalf of several medical associations was cited in a 2012 Supreme Court opinion involving the patent eligibility of medical diagnostic procedures. Strandburg received her BS from Stanford University, her PhD from Cornell University, and her JD with high honors from the University of Chicago. She clerked for Judge Richard Cudahy of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
