Dr. Sab­rina Kirrane is postdoc­toral re­searcher work­ing at the In­sti­tute of In­form­a­tion Busi­ness at the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness.  

Sab­rina’s PhD, which she com­pleted at the In­sight Centre for Data Ana­lyt­ics at the Na­tional Uni­versity of Ire­land Gal­way, fo­cused on the prob­lem of ac­cess con­trol for the Web of Data. The over­arch­ing goal of her PhD thesis was to provide a set of ac­cess con­trol strategies that, to­gether with the ex­ist­ing Web of Data in­fra­struc­ture, can be used to sup­port eBus­i­ness on top of in­ter­linked ma­chine-read­able data. Sab­rina’s cur­rent re­search fo­cuses on pri­vacy im­plic­a­tions as­so­ci­ated with the pub­lish­ing, in­ter­link­ing and reas­on­ing over per­sonal in­form­a­tion. She is par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in the mul­tidiscip­lin­ary nature of pri­vacy pre­ser­va­tion that spans the hu­man­it­ies, so­cial sciences, in­form­a­tion tech­no­logy, se­cur­ity and legal do­mains.

Prior to mov­ing to aca­demia she worked in a num­ber of soft­ware en­gin­eer­ing roles, in­volved in the ar­chi­tec­ture, ana­lysis, im­ple­ment­a­tion and de­ploy­ment of en­ter­prise solu­tions.
