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 my PhD project is 'The regulation of drone autonomy: implications for the European civil airspace' which is being supervised by Bruno O. Martins.
