M-EPLI is happy to welcome a new PhD researcher, Iris Xu. Iris studied the marketisation of Dutch higher education institutions in China for her MA Thesis. She will join M-EPLI as of 1 December 2022 to carry out research on the effectiveness and acceptability of personalised law in privacy protection for social media users in China, the EU, and the US. Coming from an interdisciplinary background, Iris received her Bachelor’s degree in anthropology and psychology from Lafayette College and her Master’s degree in social sciences from the University of Amsterdam. Her research will incorporate interdisciplinary methods, including doctrinal legal research, experiments, and interviews, to comprehensively understand the potentiality of personalised law in privacy protection and to understand the boundary of it within the legal frameworks of different regions and from the perspectives of individuals.
