Curriculum Vitae

Amelie is a DPhil (PhD) in Law candidate at the University of Oxford. Her research examines the duty of care in the use of AI and the impact of deploying high-performing intelligent agents on the standard of care in the tort of negligence. She is interested in the intersection of private law theory and AI, drawing on concepts from law and economics, philosophy of law, and the behavioural sciences. Since September 2023, she has been a Lecturer in Law at Keble College, Oxford.

As an undergraduate, Amelie studied Law and Philosophy in parallel at Heidelberg University, the University of Oxford (New College), and the Université de Genève, graduating with the German First State Exam in Law and a Magister Iuris (2022).
