Michael Kolain

Coordinator of Department

Welcome to my homepage

As a legal scholar, I am currently working as the coordinator of the research unit "Transformation of the State in Times of Digitization" (Prof. Dr. Mario Martini).

My research focus is the regulation of new technologies (such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics), especially for implementation in the public sector. I approach those topics from the perspective of constitutional as well as data (protection) law – and specifically enjoy interdisciplinary collaboration in the field of legal informatics, standardisation and social sciences.

I am currently researching on the topics AI-regulation, blockchain in the public sector, digital identities, eHealth, eGov, GovTech and human-machine-interaction. 

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in my research or would like to collaborate.
