Law postgraduate Laura Keogh has been selected as one of three Edinburgh students to present at the Universitas 21 Graduate Research Conference.
Universitas 21 (U21) is a global network of research-intensive universities, of which Edinburgh is a member, and its annual graduate research conference provides a platform for students to develop their research skills.
This year’s U21 Graduate Research Conference will be held in Shanghai from the 9th to the 12th June and has the theme of ‘Digital Future’.
The University of Edinburgh selects three postgraduate students from any discipline to attend each year, and provides funding of up to £1,500 for each student to attend the conference.
Ms Keogh, who is studying the LLM in Innovation, Technology and Law, will present her research, which explores the data protection issues that are raised by satellite usage in gathering data about individuals from outer space.
Her research supervisor is Professor Burkhard Schafer.
