About

This website

In theory, this is a personal blog that will focus mostly on Law, Technology and Digital Rights. In practice, anything goes.

These are the rules:

I write mostly for myself but everyone is welcome here. | The blog will have posts both in English and in Portuguese, depending on the subject and intended audience. | There are no comments, but feel free to drop me an email to react to any text or for any other reason. | I don't expect to write often.

Me

I am a lawyer, based in Lisbon, Portugal. I graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Lisbon. I'm co-founder and the current president of D3 - Defesa dos Direitos Digitais, the Portuguese digital rights association, part of the European Digital Rights (EDRi) network. At D3 I do a bit of everything; mostly in tech policy, advocacy, and lobbying related to digital rights issues such as privacy, net neutrality, data retention, public surveillance, copyright or platform regulation. I contribute to research projects within the areas of law and technology and I have been an active civil society representative on international Internet governance fora such as IGF and EuroDIG.
