Mijn onderzoeksinteresse ligt op het gebied van de Overheidsdigitalisering en recht. En dan in het bijzonder het empirisch onderzoek naar de maatschappelijke betekenis daarvan (wat weten en vinden burgers of ambtenaren van overheidsdigitalisering).  Binnen dat rechtssociologische kader kijk ik naar vraagstukken rondom open source, open standaarden, open data, het privacyrecht, de Archiefwet, ICT-aanbestedingsrecht, en het telecommunicatierecht.
