Computational Auditing. How can we use computational techniques to help auditors assess reliability (accuracy and completeness) of reporting? With Rob Christiaanse  I develop model-based auditing, a computational approach to auditing and monitoring that makes use of a normative model of the relationships between the flow of money and goods (value-cycle).  

Data Protection in Contract Negotiation and Monitoring. With Stéphanie van Gulijk (TLS) and Kartik Chawla I work on an approach to give users more control over their personal data. It is based on the idea that private law, about contracts, is better suited to protect rights of citizens than public law frameworks like the GDPR, because data is  often provided as a kind of 'payment' for a service.
