About Sylvie

Professor Delacroix focuses on the intersection between law and ethics, with a particular interest in data and machine Ethics and the role of habit within moral decisions. Her current research focuses on the design of computer systems meant for morally-loaded contexts. She is also considering the potential inherent in ‘bottom-up’ Data Trusts as a mechanism to address power imbalances between data-subjects and data-controllers.

Professor Delacroix is a commissioner on the Public Policy Commission on the use of algorithms in the justice system (Law Society of England and Wales). She is also a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute.
