Human Rights Center, University of Minnesota Law School
Research fellow & Senior legal advisor to the UN Special Rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights
Minneapolis, MN
I am a research fellow at the Human Rights Center of the University of Minnesota Law School where I lead the support provided by the University of Minnesota Human Rights Center to the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights and serve as senior legal advisor to the Special Rapporteur.

My background as a practitioner and academic is in human rights and security policies, with particular focus on counter-terrorism and violent extremism. My research focus includes the human rights implications of ways in which businesses cooperate with governments in the area of counter-terrorism, in particular with respect to data collection, processing, and sharing as well as regulating access to and use of online services and content in the context of addressing terrorist use of the Internet and ICTs.

I have previously worked with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Human Rights, Big Data and Technology project housed at the Human Rights Centre of the University of Essex, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF), among others.

I hold a PhD in international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, an LLM in international humanitarian law and human rights from the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, a master’s degree in comparative law and governance from the Andrassy Gyula German University in Budapest and a degree in law from the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj Napoca, Romania.

Talk to me about: all things counter-terrorism (data collection, processing, and sharing; biometric tools; watchlists; addressing terrorist and violent extremist content online; and business responsibility in relation to all this); BHR in situations of armed conflict; collaborations and partnerships.
