I am a policy analyst at the Open Markets Institute. My research focuses on technology platforms, antitrust, and how the law distributes power in our society.
My scholarship has been published by the Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal, Washington Monthly, The American Prospect, Slate, The Hill, ProMarket, Wired, Newsweek, and more. I have also published multiple research reports for the Open Markets Institute and for the Center for Journalism and Liberty.
I have previously worked for the Connecticut Department of Consumer protection after being awarded a Janet D. Steiger Fellowship in 2017 by the American Bar Association. To bring awareness to antitrust issues, I gave a TEDx Talk at the University of Connecticut in 2017, where I detailed the systemic industry consolidation in the United States, the economic consequences of market concentration, and what ordinary citizens can do to fight back.
I earned a B.S. in Management from the University of Connecticut in 2012 and a J.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 2019. You can follow me on Twitter @danielahanley and subscribe to my Substack for my latest updates and commentary.
