I aim to identify explanatory benchmarks and modalities for providing rights relevant understanding of data driven technologies and their applications to laymen users. In particular, I focus on automated decision making processes. With privacy at the core, my interests more broadly concern humans and technology, their mutual shaping and how this effects our understanding of human rights protections. I have professional and research experience in fields where technology supports human interaction and where humans interact with machines.

In dumber times, the transformation of citizens' reality to their administrative truth already proved to be a tricky process.
