Bio:

Pia is mainly concerned with the regulation of ADM systems in Germany. For example, how algorithmic discrimination can be addressed through the reform of the German General Equal Treatment Act, how more transparency about the use of ADM systems in the public sector should be established through a national AI register, or what challenges we face in regulating platforms or AI in the workplace.

Pia holds a Master's degree in Sociocultural Studies from the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder) and a Bachelor's degree in European Studies from Maastricht University.

Before joining AlgorithmWatch, she worked as a political educator. Pia had previously worked at organisations such as Human Rights Watch, INKOTA-netzwerk e.V. and European Alternatives.
