I am a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute. At Oxford, I am currently leading a research project on how to implement effective human oversight in systems of automated decision-making. As a member of the Governance of Emerging Technologies project I am also exploring the legal, ethical, and social implications of AI, Big Data, and other novel information technologies.
My latest research papers address the regulation of inferential analytics in online advertising
- Neutralizing Online Behavioural Advertising: Algorithmic Targeting with Market Power as an Unfair Commercial Practice
the risks of ‘audit capture’ when trying to regulate large platforms
- Taming the Few: Platform Regulation, Independent Audits, and the Risks of Capture Created by the DMA and DSA
and suggest a novel metric with which to measure with concentration in the distribution of online advertising as a result of personalisation
- The Concentration-after-Personalisation Index (CAPI): Governing Effects of Personalisation Using the Example of Targeted Online Advertising
Before joining the University of Oxford, I was an Emile Noël Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at New York University, School of Law. At NYU, I was also affiliated with the Digital Welfare State and Human Rights Project. From 2016 to 2018 I was a Visiting Researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law.
I earned a Dr. iur. from the University of Hamburg, specializing in the institutional design of courts, combining legal research with the social science of human decision-making.
I hold an M.Sc. in Politics and Government from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Mag. iur. in International Law and European Union Law from the University of Hamburg as well as a Bac. iur. in Law from the same institution. I studied Philosophy at King’s College London during an academic year abroad.
I am also a contributor to newspapers. Recently, I have written about algorithmic fairness and the criminal justice system as well as the use of artificial intelligence in the welfare state.
