Georgia Bullen

Georgia joined Superbloom (previously Simply Secure) in 2018, returning to her first passions — usability and human centered design. She has been working to change who technology serves as an advocate in the internet health movement focusing on issues such as security, privacy, and equitable access to technology. Her work has focused on the intersection of human-centered design, communities, physical space, and technology – e.g. how technology intersects with human rights — access to information and the right to communicate. Georgia brings over 20 years of experience at the intersection of usability and design, technology, data, policy, and nonprofit leadership.

In addition to her work at Superbloom, Georgia is the chair of the Advisory Committee for Measurement Lab and serves as an advisor to TechCongress. Georgia came to Superbloom from New America’s Open Technology Institute, where she had most recently been a core member of the leadership team. Georgia studied Psychology and Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon and Urban Planning at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Her previous work and projects are available at
