Dr Jennifer Cobbe

Coordinator, Trust & Technology Initiative

Office Phone: +44 (0) 1223 763851


I am the Coordinator of the Trust & Technology Initiative, based at the Computer Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science and Technology.

Research Interests

While I work in the Department of Computer Science and Technology, my background is in law, taking an interdisciplinary approach to look at the impact of the use of machine learning systems by corporations and states in the areas of public law, human rights,  surveillance, privacy, and data protection. In the Computer Laboratory I am part of the Compliant and Accountable Systems research group. My current primary area of research is on applying administrative law standards and judicial review processes to automated decision-making in order to develop standards, mechanisms, and tools for legally compliant and reviewable systems in the public sector.

About us

The Trust & Technology Initiative brings together and drives forward interdisciplinary research from Cambridge and beyond to explore the dynamics of trust and distrust in relation to internet technologies, society and power; to better inform trustworthy design and governance of next generation tech at the research and development stage; and to promote informed, critical, and engaging voices supporting individuals, communities and institutions in light of technology’s increasing pervasiveness in societies.
