My research analyses how the technical architecture of the smartphone ecosystem may pose harm to its users, particularly their right to data protection and their ability to limits these harms.
Besides, I am currently building TrackerControl, an app to expose hidden data flows in apps to end-users and regulatory bodies, and educate users about their legal rights.
My work is part of my research group's ongoing efforts to develop more ethical technology.
Previously, I analysed the compliance of mobile apps with GDPR in my MSc thesis under the supervision of Professor Max van Kleek.
I studied mathematics and computer science in Aachen (Germany), Edinburgh, and Oxford.
Besides my studies, I have long been passionate about IT policy and involved in relevant student societies.
