Eva is reading for a DPhil in Cyber Security (EPSRC CDT) with a specialisation in Law. Her DPhil thesis is devoted to the legal implications of computational creativity of artificial intelligence-driven systems deployed in network defence. Her doctoral research is supervised by Justine Pila and it is financially supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Eva holds a Magister juris degree from the Law Faculty, Charles University in Prague and an LLM in Intellectual Property Law from the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (a joint project of the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law, the University of Augsburg, the Technische Universität München, and The George Washington University Law School, Washington, D.C.). Her professional experience spans teaching Intellectual Property Law for the Law Faculty, University of Oxford, tutoring for St Catherine’s College, University of Oxford; coordinating public policy making in the internal market at the Secretariat General of the European Commission in Brussels; and practising law in corporate, transactions and IP/IT legal teams.

Eva’s previous research includes legal and socio-legal topics such as the role of judges in the social and political context (as a Student Research Assistant at the Department of Politics and Sociology, Law Faculty, Charles University in Prague) and the philosophical and psychological aspects of free will and responsibility (master’s thesis at the Law Faculty, Charles University in Prague). At the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center, Eva focused on the abuse of dominant position by refusal to grant a licence in the context of standard essential patents. Her current research interests cover inter-disciplinary issues of law and technology, namely artificial intelligence, cyber security, intellectual property and data protection.
