Interests

My research focuses on computer science and law, notably data protection under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

I am currently working on two projects in this area:

  • TrackerControl, an app to expose hidden data flows in apps to end-users and regulatory bodies, and educate users about their legal rights
  • gdpr4devs.com, a website for app developers to summarise their legal and technical data protection requirements

My work is part of my research group's ongoing efforts to scrutinise privacy in digital devices. A widely covered past outcome was the first ever privacy analysis of 1m apps, as part of the EPSRC-funded Mobile App X-Ray project.

Previously, I analysed the compliance of mobile apps with GDPR in my MSc thesis under the supervision of Professor Max van Kleek.

Biography

I studied computer science and mathematics in Aachen (Germany), Edinburgh, and Oxford.

Besides my studies, I have long been passionate about IT policy and involved in relevant student societies.

I am now pursuing a doctorate under the supervision of Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt, as part of the Human-Centred Computing Group.
