Expert Statement

My expertise concerns governance of data, data ethics and crisis management. This also encompasses data ethics, blockchain governance and responsible data use (e.g. data protection in states of emergencies). In crisis management, I specialise on data collection, analysis and planning as well as forecasting and scenario building.
