Victor Morel

PhD Student in Computer Science



Victor Morel is a PhD student at Inria, in the Privatics team.

His research interests include privacy protection, design, networks (such as found in the Internet of Things), and ethics of technology in a broad manner.

His thesis aims to protect privacy by enhancing information and consent in the IoT. Following the recent General Data Protection Regulation, he proposes concrete means for data subjects to gain access on data collection in IoT environments, and to electronically express their own binding privacy policies.

He appreciates sober, hackable, and accessible technology that works.

Besides his academic activities, he cofounded FELINN, an association defending decentralization, privacy, and free software through popular education.
