Ruta Liepina (R.)
Her research interests revolve around the topics of legal reasoning, argumentation, and data science. In particular, she analyses patterns in decision-making by judges and lawyers by using AI and law methods from the fields of logic, argumentation, natural language processing, ontologies, data science, and computational social science. She is also interested in the topics of AI liability in torts, consumer protection through technology, and mass collaborations in legal research.
Her PhD thesis at the European University Institute (2020) modelled causal reasoning in vaccine injury and toxic torts cases. She holds a MA Degree in Legal Studies and Philosophy from the University of Aberdeen (2015) and a LLM Degree in Comparative, European and International Laws from European University Institute (2016). During her PhD studies she was a visiting scholar at University of Bologna, Utrecht University, and Swansea University.
