*_Olga Cavalli SOI_*
I hold a degree in Electronic and Electric Engineer, an MBA and masters
degree in Telecommunication Regulation. I am working towards my PhD in
Business Administration, the focus of my investigation is Internet
Governance and Development in Latin America.
From the academic side, I am a private investigator and a professor at
the University of Buenos Aires, at the Instituto Tecnológico Buenos
Aires and at the Diplomacy Career of the Ministry of Foreing Affairs of
Argentina. In these institutions I teach technology, organizational
structure and public policy.
As an advisor to the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I have
represented Argentina both at the WSIS second phase and in the GAC. I
am a member of the Advisory Group for the Internet Governance Forum (IGF).
In the private sector, I have worked as a consultant for companies and
non-governmental organizations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay,
Venezuela, USA, Canada and Germany.
I am convinced that Internet and ICTs are a leapfrog for development in
Latin America, in this sense understanding Internet policies and ICANN
role is relevant. Among the various issues related with Internet public
policy, I find specially interesting and challenging IDNs and new gTLDs.
