Nat Gyenes

Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society

Nat Gyenes is a global health researcher, anthropologist and writer focusing on the intersection of access to health and access to the internet. As Special Projects Lead at Meedan, she works on the development of tools that improve information access and digital inclusion. She also leads the Health Misinformation working group at the Credibility Coalition, and as research affiliate at Harvard's Berkman Klein Center, examines the way that the health information we encounter online impacts disease distribution, and the role that epidemics have in changing cultures, traditions and societies. She's on a global hunt for murals that depict this, starting in Mexico City. Before joining Meedan, Nat worked at the MIT Media Lab, with the UN Special Rapporteur on Child Protection, developed guidelines for health professionals working with trauma-affected refugees, and attended the Harvard School of Public Health.
