My dissertation, published in 2019, concerned electronic evidence in criminal procedure. I have also examined, e.g., questions related to exclusion of evidence, online fraud, and the burden of explanation in criminal cases. My current research interests include the effects of technology on legal processes, data protection and data security, as well as freedom of expression in the online environment.
Keywords: electronic evidence, evidence, criminal procedure, pre-trial investigation, coercive measures, trial procedure, privacy, data protection, computer networks, cybercrime, freedom of expression, courtroom technology, legal decision-making
