Short presentation

My background is in Tort Law and Data Protection Law. I defended my PhD dissertation "Privacy Torts in Sweden" in October 2020 at the Faculty of Law, Uppsala University. At the Commercial Law Sector, Department of Business Studies, I conduct research within WASP-HS funded project "AI and the Financial Markets". My focus within the project is on issues relating to liability for AI systems in the developing EU regulations and the legal handling of AI related risks.
