I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute. My current work for the Governance of Emerging Technologies project explores the legal, ethical, and social implications of AI, machine learning, and other emerging information technologies.
My latest research paper addresses the legality of online behavioural advertising. It analyses the influence of advertising intermediaries’ market power on consumer choice:
- Neutralizing Online Behavioural Advertising: Algorithmic Targeting with Market Power as an Unfair Commercial Practice
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 (German) 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.
