Linda Weigl is a doctoral researcher from Nuremberg (Germany). Her academic background is in the Political Sciences and European Public Policy and Administration. She completed her studies in Italy and the Netherlands, and then undertook a traineeship at the European Parliamentary Research Service in Brussels. Before coming to Luxembourg, she worked for a Brussels-based public affairs consultancy with clients from the financial services industry where she mainly monitored and worked on EU digital policy and EU financial regulation.

Linda is particularly interested in electronic identification, e-Government, and the digitalisation of public administration; hence she decided to pursue an academic career in these promising fields. Her research project is concerned with transformational government and the societal and managerial implications of digital identities and distributed ledger technologies.

In general, Linda focuses on the use information and technology to design and improve public services, management and policy-making (GovTech), as well to enhance regulatory and compliance processes (RegTech). More specifically, Linda’s current research is dedicated to a new type of digital identity management called “Self-Sovereign Identity” and the surrounding technical, social and institutional context. She further researches how technology-centric solutions can be reconciled with democratic criteria and public values.

Linda is advised by Professor Dr Gilbert Fridgen.
