Raphaële is a Lecturer in EU Law at Edinburgh Law School. She is currently also a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at iCourts at the University of Copenhagen, where she conducts a research project entitled ‘PROFILE: Safeguarding equality in the European Algorithmic Society’. Her project investigates the conceptual, doctrinal and procedural frictions that arise at the intersection of algorithmic decision-making and EU equality law.

Raphaële’s research interests are in discrimination and equality law, critical legal theory, law & society and legal mobilisation, human rights law and law and technology. In particular, she has been working on issues of intersectionality and intersectional discrimination in the framework of her Ph.D. dissertation and on algorithmic discrimination, bias in automated decision-making systems and data-driven inequality as part of her postdoctoral research project.

Raphaële was trained as a political scientist and a lawyer. She received her Master’s Degree from Sciences Po Lille in France and the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Germany. After a year of specialisation in international human rights law at SAIS Europe, Johns Hopkins University, where she obtained a Master’s degree in international affairs, she received a LL.M. in Comparative, European and International laws from the EUI. Raphaële has also been a Fulbright-Schuman visiting researcher at Columbia Law School in New York. Before joining Edinburgh Law School, Raphaële was a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht Law School and a member of the coordination team of the European Network of Legal Experts in Gender Equality and Non-Discrimination Law.
