Silvia de Conca
Assistant Professor in Law and Technology
I am a legal scholar investigating the interaction of new technologies with society using the law, borrowing ideas from sociology, philosophy, and behavioral sciences, and exploring empirical methods. I have a Ph.D. in Law & tech, master degrees in law from Roma Tre University and the London School of Economics, I have practiced the law in international law firms, and I have taught IT law and IP law at the Tec de Monterrey University, in Mexico. I am the co-chair of the Human Rights in the Digital Age group of the Nederlands Network for Human Rights Research (NNHRR). I am always interested in discussing privacy, data protection, regulation of manipulation, smart speakers, or IT law with colleagues from every discipline!
Fun fact: When I was little I didn't know how to tie my shoes with a bow, so I made up my own way and, well, I still use it. My bows look ugly but hey, they work!
