Hannah Smith

DPhil Candidate

Hannah is a DPhil Candidate in Socio-Legal Studies primarily based at the Centre for Health, Law, and Emerging Technologies. Her research utilises a mixed-methods approach to explore the presence of divergences between legal approaches and citizens’ expectations towards the re-use of administrative data. Based on her findings, she seeks to propose ways for law and other regulatory mechanisms to ‘respond’ to these divergences to promote both the public interest in research and protect citizens’ privacy interests. This project is supervised by Professors Jane Kaye and Bettina Lange and is supported by a 1+3 ESRC Studentship.

In addition to her doctoral work, Hannah has acted as a Research Assistant for the Waiting Room Project and is a Co-Editor at the Journal of the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies. Prior to her DPhil, Hannah completed an M.St in Socio-Legal Research and has also been awarded the BCL and a first class degree in Jurisprudence, all from the University of Oxford.
