Researcher

Biography

Lina joined a PhD program at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in September 2016. Currently, she works on the project under the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme 2014-2020 titled “Support Small and Medium Enterprises on the Data Protection Reform II” (STARII) and the Horizon 2020 project titled “Constructing an Alliance for Value-driven Cybersecurity” (CANVAS). She is also a contributing fellow at the Brussels Privacy Hub, where she explores the legal implications of new technologies that are being operationalised in humanitarian practice. Her PhD research concerns primarily the interaction between data breach notification obligations foreseen in the General Data Protection Regulation and the Network and Information Security Directive. 

She is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/E, IAPP). After obtaining an LLM in Law and Technology (cum laude) at Tilburg University (The Netherlands), she completed the European Commission traineeship program at the European Data Protection Supervisor. She worked as a legal intern in a Brussels-based European privacy and data security practice in 2013. She worked as a legal researcher at the Leuven University (CiTiP) in 2014-2016.

Keeping in mind the key goal of raising awareness about individuals’ rights online and in particular, the rights to the protection of personal data and privacy, Lina publishes on the topics concerning protection of human rights, regulation of new technologies and cybersecurity.
