I research on EU border control, autonomous systems and principles of the rule of law.


Works at

Doctoral student at Department of Law
Affiliated as other position at Police Education Unit at Umeå University

I research and teach mainly in constitutional law, EU-law and international law, especially on issues related to human rights, the rule of law, border control and new technology.

In my PhD thesis I analyze the implementation and use of autonomous systems within the EU's external border control in relation to principles of the rule of law. 

I am particularly interested in how legal requirements related to human control can be used as a safeguard when implementing autonomous systems, and the thesis will develop a legal theory on "meaningful human control".
