As a senior OTF Information Controls Fellow, Daniel worked with the University of New Mexico to collaborate with Ecuadorian groups to study the characteristics of past DoS attacks and mitigate future attacks expected around the 2017 Ecuadorian electoral year.

Daniel worked closely with UNM to perform a content analysis of twitter accounts and activists’ websites to measure content blocking, “sockpuppet” accounts and DoS attacks. Daniel produced a report on the challenges and findings from carrying out the project and a post for OTF’s blog.
