Dr. Audrey Lebret investigates the interactions between new technologies, biomedicine and human rights.
At CeBIL, she is working on AI@Care, a collaborative project with data scientists to identify sources of bias and discrimination in healthcare algorithms, with the aim to develop guidelines to prevent them. In particular, she investigates the notion of discrimination in international and comparative law as legal constraints playing on the elaboration of algorithms. AI@Care is funded by the first Data+ funding programme of Copenhagen University.
Among other topics in international and comparative law, her prior research concerned the interactions between human rights in organ transplantation norms. She also worked on end-of-life decision making, right to try experimental treatments in Europe and the US, reproductive technologies, privacy and the internet, same-sex marriage etc.
Audrey studied and worked in Europe, the United States and South America. Her education is both in law and in management. Audrey holds a Master’s degree in human rights law from Panthéon-Assas University in Paris, as well as a LL.M. in American law from Boston University for which she was granted a full-tuition scholarship. Audrey also holds a LL.M. in Business law and a Master in international management, completed in France and Brazil. She obtained her doctorate in international law at Panthéon-Assas university.
Before joining the faculty, Audrey taught for five years at French universities and has been assistant professor at the faculty of law of the University of Bordeaux. She also worked on a microfinance project in Brazil and at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague.
At CeBIL, she previsously worked as a postdoctoral researcher on the conceptualization and theorization of reproductive rights, a project funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.
