Biography

Raphael Gellert completed his PhD at LSTS in 2017, on the risk-based approach to data protection law (entitled “Understanding the risk-based approach to data protection: An analysis of the links between law, regulation, and risk”), and has been one of the original founders of the d.pia.lab.

He conducts interdisciplinary research in law, resorting to the social sciences and social theory, In the context of his doctoral research he analysed data protection law through the use of literature coming from the fields of risk and regulation studies. In this context he wrote extensively on data protection law, data protection impact assessments, and risk management.

He is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT – Tilburg University), where he focuses on issues of algorithmic regulation broadly speaking.

Finally, Raphaël has always had an interest for issues related to human rights and environmental law. For this reason, he has written on such topics as smart electricity grids and sustainable development, nanotechnologies, or anti-discrimination law.
