Berti Suman

Anna Berti Suman is a PhD researcher at Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society. Her PhD project aims to investigate how the increasing connectivity between the (smart) city apparatus and the citizen's body affects citizens' participation in the governance of environmental health challenges. Her thesis also explores the guarantees for ensuring that the incorporation of IoT in the city and in the citizen’s body does not result in an excessive control of the state on individuals, leading to a breach of citizens’ decisional privacy, masked under a good cause.

Anna has a background in Law from the University of Bologna (BA, MA, cum laude) and Transnational Law from the University of Geneva. Her specializations are Health Law and Technology, Environmental Law, and Sustainable Innovation.
