As a Senior Information Controls Fellow, Ben Jones worked with Princeton on their Censored Planet project with the aim of identifying safe means of measuring Internet censorship at scale.

He created a method to use open DNS resolvers to get a snapshot of DNS censorship across the entire world. Ben also developed risk mitigation techniques for individual users resulting in a paper that was presented at the Workshop on Ethics in Networked Systems Research , among others. Ben also advanced understanding around detecting DNS censorship. The paper was presented at the PAM conference. Lastly, Ben focused on improving mobile interference detection and continued presenting his research around ethical censorship measurements. Despite these accomplishments, Ben ended his fellowship early after being accepted by Google as a summer fellow.
