Main research interests

  • Data privacy and Surveillance: Online services are increasingly collecting our personal data for various kinds of profiling and targeting. How can science and technology help preventing ubiquitous surveillance?
  • Manipulation and Cognitive security: AI is currently used to influence/manipulate decisions/opinions. How can science help  understanding and preventing these new threats against human autonomy and democracy.
  • Trusted and Ethical Algorithmic Decision Systems (ADS) (security, privacy, fairness, explainability, …): AI is more and more used to make decisions about Humans (predictive health, justice, police,…). How can we build ADS that respects humanity and Human Rights?
