Colombian lawyer, currently working as an Assitant Professor of Law at Groningen University. Lorena has received her Ph.D. in the program of Individual Person and Legal Protections at the Scuola Superiore Sant`Anna (Italy).

She was previously an Assistant Professor of Private Law at Los Andes University in Bogotá (Colombia) where she taught commercial law (2019-2022), securities (2019-2022) and law and technology (2020-2022). As one the main projects, she develops the initiative named "The adoption of disruptive technologies (AI) in organizations through the creation and implementation of an ethical-legal toolkit". Throughout 2022, data and information collection was carried out by some AI projects that were being developed at the Universidad de los Andes in the CinfonIA group. Likewise, a book on disruptive technologies was coordinated and some pieces on AI in Colombia were written. In addition, she participated in the creation, design and implementation of the MOOC fAIr LAC on "How to make responsible use of artificial intelligence in the public sector". Also, she participated in the development of the MOOC on Introduction to Artificial Intelligence of the Universidad de los Andes with Coursera, which is part of the creation of the Master's Degree in Artificial Intelligence (MaIA) within which the design and creation of the module on Ethics in AI is directed. Thus, with the information collected an information file was created with qualitative and quantitative data to identify the basic principles of the toolkit, which was published in its Beta version on GECTI's webpage.
