He is also interested in topics such as DNA forensics, identity, digital constitutional rights, ?code as law?, human enhancement and regulation of bio- and nanotechnologies.

From 2004-2009, Koops co-ordinated a VIDI research program on law, technology, and shifting power relations. From 2005-2010, he was a member of De Jonge Akademie, a young-researcher branch of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.
