Data ethics, technological exceptionalism, and privacy: from legal and technological perspectives

Mar 28, 2019

I was invited back to my alma mater to talk about my experiences transitioning from Law to Computer science and how that shapes my work as a PhD researcher. I spoke about my areas of research, how I became interested in my current topics, and why lawyers do not have to learn how to code to thrive in our data-driven society.
