This is the website of Sarah Eskens. I am a legal scholar interested in the rights to privacy, data protection, and freedom of expression (including the right to receive information), and media and telecommunications law. I research questions about these rights, freedoms, and fields of law in relation to a variety of technological developments and online applications, such as news recommender systems, artificial intelligence, and digital surveillance. I am always a bit hesitant to call my work interdisciplinary, but it's a fact that I have published together with communication scientists and journalism scholars and presented at communication science conferences, and that I interact a lot with people from other disciplines such as computer science, media studies, and philosophy.
I am employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Information Law (Instituut voor Informatierecht - IViR), University of Amsterdam.
