Nasser Eledroos Joins CLIC as Managing Director


10.18.21 —Nasser Eledroos has joined Northeastern Law's Center for Law, Information and Creativity (CLIC) as managing director.

Eledroos is a public interest technologist whose professional experiences have been centered in using technology to inform public policy and law reform. Prior to joining Northeastern, Nasser was appointed as the first technologist for the Suffolk County DA’s Office by District Attorney Rachael Rollins ’97. His work at the District Attorney’s Office included focusing on creating data-driven operations to support DA Rollins’ policy goals of reducing racial disparities and bringing a public health approach to addressing conduct in the criminal legal system. Before that, Nasser was a fellow in the Technology for Liberty Program at the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts, where he used technology and data science to help support the ACLU’s advocacy on the Massachusetts drug lab scandal and prosecutorial/policing reform.

Eledroos is a 2021 Atlantic Fellow for Racial Equity with Columbia University and the Nelson Mandela Foundation. He holds a BS in computer science from Wentworth Institute of Technology.

“I am thrilled to be joining Northeastern Law as managing director for CLIC, and look forward to advancing the work of the center alongside Faculty Director Ari Waldman and the many talented faculty and staff of the law school on issues related to law, technology, civic society and racial equity,” said Eledroos.

“I am thrilled that Nasser Eledroos will be the new CLIC managing director,” said Professor Ari Waldman, CLIC's faculty director. “Nasser brings extraordinary experience, talent and perspective to CLIC. He is uniquely positioned to lead CLIC in these times of mass surveillance, data-extractive corporations, and discriminatory and overly aggressive law enforcement. He is a subject matter expert who can work with students across the law school and the wider university to turn ideas into action. With Nasser in charge, CLIC will have an impact on the real world and make life better for the marginalized among us.”
