I am Professor of Law and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Tübingen and Director of the CZS Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Law. Previously, I worked at the the University of Oxford, the London School of Economics and the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition. I have also been a Visiting Professor at LUISS University as well as an Affiliated Fellow at University College London.
My research focuses on law and artificial intelligence as well as on EU data law.
Previous projects have focused on the use of AI by public administrations, the explainability of AI, on access to data for environmental purposes, on the regulation of data intermediaries under the Data Governance Act and on the notions of the data controller and personal data under the GDPR. I am moreover author of Subnational Authorities in EU Law (Oxford University Press 2017) and Blockchain Regulation and Governance in Europe (Cambridge University Press 2018), an editor of the Cambridge Handbook on the Law of the Sharing Economy (which has also been translated into Korean) and Smart Urban Mobility.
I am a member of a number of expert committees on digitalization, including the Council of Europe’s ad hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence and the European Commission’s Blockchain Observatory and Forum. I have moreover advised national institutions as well as the European Commission and the European Parliament on different occasions.
