Dr Luc Rocher

Fellow, Junior Research Fellow

Departmental Research Lecturer

Oxford Internet Institute

Luc Rocher is a Departmental Research Lecturer at the Oxford Internet Institute, where they study the governance of algorithmic societies and the regulation of technologies built on human data. Luc’s research develops statistical models to make sense of these complex systems and adversarial machine learning approaches to highlight weaknesses of deployed technologies. Their primary area of expertise is data privacy, privacy-enhancing technologies, and anonymity. Their work demonstrated the limits of traditional techniques to de-identify and widely share ‘anonymous’ data online, suggesting action for better privacy-preserving frameworks for researchers to collect and analyse sensitive personal data. Luc received a PhD from UCLouvain in 2019 and was a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London in 2019–2021.
