CV

I am a doctoral candidate of Prof. Dr. Silja Vöneky at the DaDuHealth research project. The project aims to contribute to the essential ethical, legal and social questions of digitization, Big Data and artificial intelligence in health research and health care. My research focuses mainly on the legal provisions relevant for access and use of health-related data for research purposes. Next to that I am also Prof. Dr. Vöneky’s research assistant at Institute for Public Law, Department of Public International Law, Comparative Law and Ethics of Law at the University of Freiburg. Before my move to Freiburg I was working as a legal advisor for an IT- and Cyber Security Start-Up in Berlin as well as completing my legal clerkship at the Kammergericht Berlin and at the German Permanent Mission to the UN in New York. In 2016 I received my law degree from the University of Potsdam. I was born in Berlin, Germany. 

FRIAS Research Project

The use of accumulated health-related data for health research is one of the most promising areas of health innovation. The contexts of data collection and use of data can vary significantly. It includes highly regulated and institutionalized areas such as the use of clinical data generated by the treatment of patients. Furthermore, there is the use of data generated by individuals through the use of mobile devices and wearables, shared on social cloud services and sometimes evaluated by the consumers themselves. The overarching goal of DaDuHealth is to develop recommendations for the regulation of the access to and the use of health-related data. Therefore, DaDuHealth analyses legal and ethical framework conditions of data use. The project additionally examines institutional guidelines, social trends, consumer behavior and stakeholder interests in the medical-institutional and consumer health technology sector. Accordingly, the project aims to contribute to the essential ethical, legal and social questions of digitization, Big Data and artificial intelligence in health research and health care.
