Interests

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.

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