Communications Manager and Personal Data Manager (they're compatible!)

I'm responsible for internal and external communications where I enjoy the every day challenge of articulating the value of research to different audiences and stakeholders. I mix channels and media to achieve this goal while encouraging employee engagement in a multicultural and interdisciplinary environment.

I became interested in privacy and personal data whilst doing a Masters in Digital Marketing from 2015 to 2017 (whilst working). I chose the potential impact of GDPR and the role of transparency and personal data in the customer relationship in online advertising and marketing as the topic of my second year thesis. I was hooked. With the support of NAVER I became CIPP/E and CIPM certified from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) in 2018 and officially took on the role of Personal Data Manager on April 1st 2018.

Prior to NAVER LABS Europe I ran communications for the Xerox Research Centre Europe and before that worked in teaching, translation and communications consultancy.

I came to live in France after graduating from Sussex University (BA in Linguistics).

I speak English and French, have a smattering of Italian and even less Korean but am trying to improve the latter.
