Legal Advisor

I graduated with a Master of Law specialized in Intellectual Property from Saint Louis and the Free University of Brussels in Belgium, where I had the opportunity of being acquainted with the European perspective on privacy. In May 2015, I graduated from Fordham with an LL.M. in Intellectual Property and Information Technology. During my year at Fordham, my interest in privacy strengthened as I took courses in Internet Law and Information Privacy Law and learned more about the American conception of privacy. Additionally, I took an encryption class at NYC Resistor and passed the CIPP/US.  

During the summer 2015, I had the opportunity to work as a fellow researcher at the Center on Law and Information Policy (CLIP) at Fordham under the supervision of Professor Joel Reidenberg. The project involved working with computer science engineers at Carnegie Mellon University and Stanford University, developing natural language processing technologies that will assist Internet users to better understand website privacy policies. My tasks include drafting research results and legal recommendations related to the project.

Currently, I am bettering my understanding of the American legal system at Fordham for a third semester and intend to take the New York Bar in July 2016. Alongside, I am interning part-time as a data privacy and legal assistant at Global Pulse, an organization launched by the United Nations Secretary General which explore initiatives aimed at using Big Data to improve humanitarian response and development programs while protecting individuals’ privacy.
