Speaker Bio
Justin Hendrix began his career at The Economist, where he observed firsthand how digital media was changing the landscape of journalism. He pursued a graduate degree to better understand the impact of that digital evolution, and joined NYC Media Lab, where he got a closer look at the information ecosystem. After teaming up with faculty at five universities to develop “Tech, Media & Democracy,” a course designed to help students explore the information ecosystem’s impact on democracy, he found clarity on what he wanted to do with the rest of his career.

In 2020, Justin co-founded Tech Policy Press, a nonprofit media venture focused on the effects of technology on democracy. It published more than 300 pieces by 100 authors in its first year, assembling a journalistic collective with new insights on these interconnected issues. He is an Emerson Collective Fellow and an associate research scientist and adjunct professor at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He collaborates regularly with Just Security, a publication associated with New York University School of Law, and he is a key contributor to its online repository of information related to the events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.
