Beatriz is an assistant professor at Sciences Po Law School in Paris and co-founder and Head of Research at the Edgelands institute.
Her research and expertise focus on data governance in urban environments and how different governance frameworks have different impacts on people's lives. Her work has explored modes of data governance in smart city projects, the sharing economy, and Covid contact tracing apps. She's currently studying surveillance technologies adopted to provide public security both in Europe and the US and how they interact with other public interests (i.e. civil liberties) and institutional frameworks and incentives.
She holds an SJD and an LLM from Harvard Law School and a LLB from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá. While in law school, Beatriz also trained as a classical pianist.
