Michèle Finck is Professor of Law and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Tübingen, an Affiliated Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich and the Centre for Blockchain Technologies at University College London as well as a Visiting Professor at LUISS University in Rome.  She previously worked at the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics. 

Her research focuses on law and artificial intelligence with a particular emphasis on data (protection) law and governance. More recently, she has become interested in the intersection between digitalization and sustainability.  Current research projects focus on data sharing services and privacy-preserving technologies, in particular federated machine learning and zero-knowledge proofs.

She is a member of a number of expert committees on digitalization, including the Council of Europe's Ad hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence ('CAHAI') and the European Commission's Blockchain Observatory and Forum. She moreover has ample experience advising national institutions as well as the European Commission and the European Parliament on different occasions.
