Dr. Nynke Vellinga is a postdoctoral researcher at the Security, Technology & e-Privacy Research Group within the Department of Transboundary Legal Studies of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. Back in 2020, Nynke successfully defended her PhD thesis, titled ‘Legal Aspects of Automated Driving. On Drivers, Producers, and Public Authorities’, at the same university. This PhD research concerned several legal challenges arising from automated driving, covering topics such as (international) traffic laws and product liability. Nynke has published a number of articles in leading journals on law and technology. In addition, she has co-authored a report on the legislative changes necessary for automated vehicles to be tested on public roads, commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (2015). Currently, the legal framework for cybersecurity in automated vehicles is one of Nynke’s main research focuses.
