Research interests

I am a postdoctoral researcher affiliated to the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT) at Tilburg University. I have a background in law and my fields of expertise and interest include business law, law and technology, the regulation of network industries and legal aspects of data governance.
I have dedicated an important part of my research to explore the interaction between electricity legislation and personal data protection, and to examine the law and policy applicable to data sharing in the European Union and the Netherlands.

My postdoctoral research is part of the NWO sponsored 'MEGAMIND' project (Measuring, Gathering, Mining and Integrating Data for Self-management in the Edge of the Electricity System). For this project, I investigate legal and ethical aspects necessary to develop a governance framework for data and AI models used in the electricity sector, to ensure that core values such as energy justice, privacy, fairness, accessibility, transparency and responsibility, are safeguarded.
For my PhD research (2018-2022), I investigated the regulatory challenges brought by data-driven innovation and the complexities of regulating data sharing in the context of the digitalized utilities (drinking water and electricity). My PhD research was part of ‘LONGA VIA’, a research project sponsored by NWO and five operators of critical infrastructures in the Netherlands: Alliander, Vitens, Port of Rotterdam, ProRail and Rijkswaterstaat.
