Abdul Abdulrahim is a graduate student at the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) completing a masters in Data Science with an interest in the use of technology in law and the issues that arise as a result. His principal areas of interest include Computational Law, Privacy-Preserving Data Analysis, Digital Rights and Algorithmic Due Process, and will hopefully be completing his thesis research on a network analysis of the web-tracking following changes in the European data protection regime.

Abdul also has some consulting experience working with the World Bank on projects for improving the effectiveness of DFID aid disbursements.
