Will RinehartMy name is William Rinehart, but you can call me Will. I’m a Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity (CGO) at Utah State University, but I'm based in Washington D.C. I specialize in the public policy of technology and innovation, a broad portfolio that includes regulation of telecom, Big Tech, competition, content, and innovation. Fundamentally, I am interested in expanding human flourishing, learning, and reforming institutions.
