My name is Gert Meyers, and since November 2020 I'm part of the Tilburg Institute of Law, Technology & Society (TILT, TLS). I obtained my training and PhD at the University of Leuven, where I conducted research on the application and introduction of Big Data and behavior-based personalisation in insurance practices. I have a background in STS, performativity studies, the pragmatist sociology of markets and governmentality studies.
My research interests are personalisation in insurance, the role of economic expectations of technologies, economic experimentation with new technologies and shifting solidarities in European societies.
I am currently involved in the 'Blockchain and the Network Society' NWO-MVI research project, where I will investigate the social implications of Blockchain technologies for the reconfiguration of value(s) (conflicts) and the rule of law.
