Ekaterina is a vising scholar from Moscow, Russia. She holds an LL.M. in Intellectual Property and works as a legal counsel for an IT company. Ekaterina’s research analyzes the effects of global digitalization on human presence. Digital identity will play a key role in a global community, but lack of the proved legal identity may cause exclusion from political, economic, and social life. Ekaterina’s research seeks to understand the theoretical and practical issues on functioning of a so-called “digital person” and focuses on possible solutions to harmonize the digital identity standard. When choosing the University of Wisconsin Law School and Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia for her research, Ekaterina was drawn to the university’s resources including library and professors.
