I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Media, Culture and Communications Department at NYU Steinhardt and at the Information Law Institute at NYU Law School working together with a dandy group of researchers under the leadership of Helen Nissenbaum. I am also part of the Intel Science and Technology Center on Social Computing. In my research, I study conceptions of privacy and surveillance in online social networks, requirements engineering, privacy enhancing technologies and identity management systems.

Outside of the university, I have been affilliated with a number of groups and initiatives. After many years of collaboration, I have finally become a member of my favorite collective Constant VZW. One concrete outcome of that collaboration has been the course “networked social” at the Ecole de Recherche Graphique which we have been teaching since 2012. I have also been a member and supporter of Alternatif Bilisim Dernegi , an association based in Turkey working on digital rights. Prior to my time in NY, I was part of the Privacy and Identity Management Group at at COSIC/ESAT at the (formerly) Catholic University in Leuven. These research groups are led by Claudia Diaz and Bart Preneel, respectively.
