President Biden will nominate Alvaro Bedoya, an online privacy expert, for a seat on the Federal Trade Commission, putting another critic of the technology industry in a key position to regulate the sector, the White House said on Monday.

Mr. Bedoya is a lawyer who has studied the way new technologies can violate privacy.

And he was previously the top lawyer on the privacy subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
