Matrix welcomes new Associate Member – Professor David Erdos


Matrix is delighted to welcome Professor David Erdos as a new Associate Member.

David is Co-Director of the Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law (CIPIL) and Professor of Law and the Open Society in the Faculty of Law. He is also WYNG Fellow in Law at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge.  Before joining Cambridge in October 2013, David spent six years as a research fellow at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, Faculty of Law and Balliol College, University of Oxford.

David’s current research explores the nature of data protection especially as it intersects with the right to privacy, freedom of expression, freedom of information and freedom of research. In addition, David continues to have a research interest in bill of rights and related constitutional developments, especially in the UK and other ‘Westminster’ democracies.

He has authored two books published by Oxford University Press and almost thirty peer-reviewed articles in leading legal, socio-legal and political science journals.

Matrix Chief Executive, Rachel Holmes, says: “We very much look forward to working with David. David is highly respected by both academics and lawyers in his areas of specialism and is regularly consulted on complex data protection and information law issues. With his impressive background and commitment to academic work contributing to informed public debate and shaping positive public outcomes, particularly in the law, David is a huge asset to our media team.”
