Research Interests

Benefiting from a multidisciplinary background in artificial intelligence (AI), economics, law, and political science, Olivia is interested in developing sustainable policies to enable beneficial development and societal adoption of emerging technologies, in particular AI. She is keen on engaging in and facilitating international, cross-disciplinary, and multi-stakeholder coordination and collaboration to ensure that the expertise of all parties instrumental to solving technology-related challenges duly informs relevant policy debates. Olivia is member of the OECD Expert Group on AI "AIGO" and the AI forum of New Zealand's working group "Forging a Coordinated AI Strategy for New Zealand."

Prior to this role, she worked with international law firms and European Institutions, such as the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission, in the areas of corporate law and international financial regulation.
