Adam is a Research Associate specialising in algorithmic decision-making in the criminal justice system. He is currently working with Professor Karen Yeung (together with 4 German research teams from computer science, neuropsychology, law and political science) on the Volkswagen Stiftung-funded FATAL4JUSTICE? project. This project critically analyses algorithmic decision-making in the criminal justice system from multiple intersecting disciplinary perspectives. Adam and Professor Yeung, as one research team, are responsible for investigating whether the use of ADM systems in the UK and USA is consistent with fundamental principles of the criminal justice system.
Adam’s research interests more generally relate to the socio-legal and theoretical implications of new and emerging technologies on decision-making, data protection law, surveillance, and platform technologies – including legal, technical and ethical modes of regulation and control.
