sava saheli singh

University of Ottawa

sava saheli singh is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa, currently working on a research project that examines the effects and use of learning technologies on teachers’ practice, especially during this time of COVID-19. In her previous postdoctoral fellowship at Queen’s University, she co-produced a series of near future fiction short films, called Screening Surveillance, that call attention to the human consequences of big data surveillance. She is also working on a fourth film in the Screening Surveillance series. Her research interests include educational surveillance; digital labour and surveillance capitalism; and critically examining the effects of technology and techno-utopianism on society.

Ala Krinickytė

NOYB – European Center for Digital Rights (AT)

Ala Krinickytė is a Data Protection Lawyer at noyb and a PhD student on data portability at the University of Vienna. She previously worked at the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights and the European Law Institute. She graduated from the College of Europe and holds a Polish law degree. Currently, she is developing a strategic action with noyb to enforce the right to data portability. She believes that the right to data portability is great in theory. In practice, however, controllers fail to take the necessary steps to implement it fully. She will discuss the obstacles to enforcing the right to data portability and steps to overcome them.

Isabel Hahn

NOYB – European Center for Digital Rights (AT)

Isabel Hahn is a Legal Trainee at noyb and holds a LLB Bachelor of Laws degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her current area of research relates to the Article 5 principles under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Her past work has focused in particular on the Purpose Limitation principle in the context of shifting data collection and processing practices. She has explored whether this principle is still able to adequately ensure that personal data is only collected for a specific purpose and not further processed in a way that is incompatible with that purpose. Isabel will be presenting her work as part of this year’s EDPL Young Scholar Award panel.
