Ariel Robinson | Analyst & Reporter
Ariel Robinson is a national security and tech policy analyst whose work has appeared in National Defense Magazine, NextGov, the Security Ledger, and elsewhere. She graduated from Wellesley College with a degree in cognitive science and linguistics, which is the foundation for her work bridging the technical and nontechnical worlds in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Ariel has Hill experience, worked for a top international security think tank, and is now the senior reporter at WashingtonExec. She is a firm believer in interdisciplinary approaches, Star Trek (TNG), and the power of art. You can find her writing about tech, plotting against the patriarchy, or climbing trees.
Ariel is also the host for The Tech Effect podcast series here on ITSPmagazine where she and a select group of experts will meet regularly to ask the hard questions: What is sacrificed for the sake of efficiency or convenience? Who gets to make that call? Whose fault is it when something goes wrong? It’s time to take charge of our digital future. Tune in to take part.
