I am French and do live close to Paris. Since being a mother, I am driven by diversity & inclusion and I appreciate how lucky I am to be both living in a “start-up nation” (France) and working for a better digital world. During almost 20 years, I have been striving to study, teach, implement and keep knowing more about data protection and digital fundamental rights in practice.
In a nutshell, my interest into Digital Regulation does not start with the jobs I had to help regulate Big Tech practices, nor with the GDPR itself. It dates back (I’m afraid!) to the time I completed my Ph.D. in Public Communication Law on "The Constitution and the Internet" -and I redrafted such work so that it would become a French mainstream book on the topic (« Can the Law ignore digital revolution? »). Three years ago, the start-up I created (called ID side -idside.eu) was just part of another journey for me to help better regulating digital habits in few clicks. More than a job, “Privacy & Digital” is somehow part of my life and something I strive to deliver on, at the same time as raising my 2 boys, gardening, cooking a bit and having fun with family & friends in post-Covid-19 era… Quite a challenge!
