Arman Noroozian

Arman Noroozian (PhD) is a senior research scientist at the European Center for Algorithmic Transparency (ECAT) where he currently contributes scientific and technical expertise in support of policy and regulation in the contexts of online intermediaries and platforms (Digital Services Act - DSA), as well as artificial intelligence technology (AI Act). He obtained his doctoral degree form Delft university of Technology (NL) and continues to examine and publish on problems in the intersection of technology and society. By blending his background in computer sciences - in particular AI, cybersecurity, and Internet measurements - with other empirical research from broader interdisciplinary areas of inquiry such as computational social sciences and economics - he helps measure technology's spread and effects, potential harms, understand its causes, and search for potential mitigations / solutions whether it be through technical means, or through non-technical means such as aligning incentives, policy and/or regulation.
