I am a Senior Lecturer in Law at the School of Law & Criminology of the University of Greenwich, responsible for launching and leading the LLB module "Information Technology Law". Prior to this post, I was a Senior Lecturer and a Research Associate at the Faculty of Media and Communication at Bournemouth University (2012-2019), where I launched, designed and led the LLM module "Cyberlaw".
I hold a PhD in law from the University of Leeds, an LLM and an LLB (Hons) from the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece). Since September 2016, I am a Visiting Research Fellow at Yale Law School's ISP Center and a PRG Alumna at the NYU Information Law Institute (US). Since 2014, I am affiliate Harvard Law Faculty staff for their course CopyrightX.
My research interests span a wide range of areas from regulating Human Computer Interfaces (especially in wearable tech/IoT) to AI, BCI and data protection: the underlying theme for these projects has been the reconceptualization of autonomy in the era of automation. To date, I have given 38 invited talks at international conferences and another 12 contributions to internet-related policy-making fora: in January 2016 I joined the Electronic Frontiers Foundation (EFF) group of experts on Free Trade Agreements and human rights. In February 2016 I was invited by the Royal Society to provide evidence on the legal and regulatory issues raised by Machine Learning. Since then I have presented my research on several occasions: My latest research on Automated Decision Making and Human-Computer Interfaces has been presented at the AALS (American Association of Law Schools) in San Francisco, at the CodeX seminars at Stanford Law School, and at the International Conference on AI & Law (ICAIL) in London. Further to this, I have been invited to present my work at the Zvi Meitar Center in Israel and at the CPDP 2018 in Brussels. In April 2018, I joined the panel of experts for the AI & Augmented Cognition 2030, a project funded by USAF (US Air Force).
In the past I have served as a contracted consultant for the Council of Europe (regional South Eastern Europe expert in Media), as an OSCE expert for Online Media, and a registered European Commission expert for European Research & Innovation. I am also an Attorney-at-law (NP - Athens Bar Association, GR) since 2006. I speak English, Russian, German, Spanish and Greek.
