Jana is a PhD candidate in Ethics and Technology and a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network 'PROTECT - Protecting Personal Data Amidst Big Data Innovation'.
She is a part of the Digital Society team and will look at how the new and emerging digital technologies such as the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, surveillance interact with our shared public values and visions of a future digital society.
She holds a Bachelor in Political Science (University of Belgrade and Ghent) and a European Master in Global Studies (University of Leipzig and Wroclaw). In her master thesis, Jana explored how public discourse, narratives and sociotechnical imaginaries impact the societal acceptance or rejection of specific technologies.
Prior to joining Rathenau, she worked in Brussels and across Europe in facilitating dialogue and collaboration on public policy on Internet. She also writes for the Digital Watch Observatory about interdisciplinary approaches, digital ethics and online trust.
