WHO I AM
WHAT I DO
Pink Earth

I'm a Full Professor of Public Law and a Rosalind Franklin Fellow at the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. From September 2021 onwards, I will also be a Professor of Law, Innovation, and Sustainability at LUISS Guido Carli in Rome. I am interested in how digital platforms, particularly Big Tech, are reshaping citizen participation, the design of smart cities, and how technology is changing the constitutional and legal protection enjoyed by citizens. I am an Affiliated Fellow (and former Resident Fellow) of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School and a Visiting Researcher at the University of Lisbon (Governance 4.0 Programme). I am currently the General Editor of the Review of European Administrative Law.

 

I do interdisciplinary and comparative legal research on regulation and technology, smart cities, and digital government. My current research agenda is focused on two central topics: digital inclusion/exclusion and regulatory innovation. I speak regularly at international conferences and I am a member of different research communities and consult for governments and international institutions. I teach on law and technology, Dutch and European administrative law, and legislation. I co-founded and manage the European Law & Tech Network, a mailing list community on law and technology. In my free time, I mentor a small number of students and young scholars.
