I have remained professionally associated with the legal field for multiple years, working for industry as well as academia. The intersection between law and technology has always intrigued me. My research interest particularly lies in the regulatory challenges emanating from the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. In my LLM thesis, I focused on the EU regulatory challenges for the safety of smart drones, specifically. As a doctoral researcher for the RegulAIR project, I aim to enhance my expertise in drone law and contribute further to this field. The preliminary title of mye PhD project is Autonomy Framework for Safe and Secure Integration of Civillian Drones in European Airspace, and is being supervised by Bruno R. Martins at PRIO.
