Profile picture of G.P. (Jeanne) Mifsud Bonnici, Prof

In brief, I (Jeanne Pia Mifsud Bonnici) come from Malta.  I first studied law at the University of Malta where I received a Doctor of Laws degree (LLD) with a thesis on data protection issues in the medical sector.  As a Chevening Scholar, I read for a Masters in Cognitive Science at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom.  After some years of teaching and legal practice, I read for a Doctor of Law degree at the University of Groningen researching on self-regulation in cyberspace.  

In 2009 I was awarded a Rosalind Franklin Fellowship at the University of Groningen. Since 2015 I have been appointed a full Professor at the same university and hold the Chair in European Technology Law and Human Rights at the Department of European and Economic Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen. 

Since 2010, I co-lead the STeP Research Group, which I also co-founded.  

I have taught and researched law at the University of Malta, the University of Central Lancashire, the University of Amsterdam and currently at the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen.

My current research focuses on four main themes:

Theme 1: Privacy and Security: conflicting and converging values

Theme 2: Data protection and health related data

Theme 3: Internet governance

Theme 4: Converging technologies and convergence of law

In each of these themes I participate in EU-funded projects and/or supervise doctoral research in the fields.
