Xavier Harding, a reporter at new technology site The Markup, is leaving to work for Mozilla.

At Mozilla, he will write about their initiatives surrounding user privacy, ethical AI, misinformation on the web and more.

“I can’t stress enough how much I’ll miss the Markup folks,” he wrote on Twitter.

After graduating from Gettysburg College, Harding worked at International Business Times/Newsweek as a tech and gaming reporter. From there he went onto Popular Science. As tech editor of Popular Science’s Now section, he continued to write about gadgets and the companies that make them, both in print and on the web.

He then worked at Mic, where he was able to write culture stories pertaining to race/inclusion, the tech industry and user privacy online.

At The Markup, he focuses on user privacy and the tech industry’s larger effect on society.
