Sinzi wants to fly. She is currently building her wings at the University of Ottawa in the Common Law program while doing research under Ian’s guidance. Sinzi completed an undergraduate degree in Criminology in “oh-so-perfect” Vancouver where she worked for several years for a UN affiliated organization. Her work was recognized in an international manual, UN publications and Canadian Government reports.
Sinzi was hoping to pursue international law but is now finding herself completely captivated by the fascinating and mysterious world of technology law. After meeting Ian in the first week of law school, Sinzi began researching the effects of implantable RFIDs on privacy. She decided that being stalked by powerful organizations couldn’t possibly be as much fun as it sounded, and decided to find out more about the “anti-1984” movement (that’s right Mr. Orwell!) in order to understand the wild, precarious world of privacy law.
When Sinzi isn’t perfecting her sarcasm or daydreaming about saving the world in a non-ethnocentric and non-colonial way, she indulges in her chronic addictions: dancing, painting, snowboarding, listening to Queen and eating Nutella. Future aspirations include becoming a part-time professional drummer, golfer, paraglider and pilot. Reach for those skies!
- Sinzi is always learning and looking to expand her knowledge in new areas.
- She has conquered exciting fields while working on Ian’s projects about RFID implantable chips, Biometrics, issues of lawful access in investigations, Naked Body Scanners, digital memory, Facebook privacy (helping Ian on an article for the Ottawa Citizen titled “The Devil is in the Defaults”), and the effect of Ambient Intelligence on privacy and due process.
