Hilary Carter leads teams dedicated to the development of decision-useful research projects and digital communications that describe open source as a paradigm for mass collaboration at scale. Together, the Research and Communications department broadens the understanding of the impact of open source software, open hardware, open standards, and open data on business, government, and society. Hilary’s career began in financial services with experiences in corporate finance, research and analysis, and global private banking. Her career pivoted to digital technology, where she focused on mobile communications and digital media consulting. Before joining the Linux Foundation, Hilary led a global, syndicated research institute focused on blockchain technology. She earned an MSc in Management from the London School of Economics.

In 2021, Hilary launched Linux Foundation Research to create the definitive collection of decision-useful insights into the open source technologies and standards underpinning much of the digital infrastructure on which the global economy depends. She is the author of multiple research projects exploring blockchain industry and ecosystem dynamics. She has contributed to books and reports on the subject of blockchain technology in government, enterprise, and society, as well as multiple research projects on the state of open source in the financial services sector and DEI.
