Jan L. Alessandrini
Past post-doctoral researcher on Big Data projects at the Universities of Oxford and St Andrews, and former ‘stolen art hunter’ at the Commission for Looted Art in Europe, Jan has now embarked on a legal career as a Future Trainee Solicitor at DAC Beachcroft in the City of London. His interest lay at the intersection of academic and technical fields, combining conventional methodologies with new digital tools, such as AI and Machine Learning, that can help to better analyse large datasets. He is particularly curious about developments in legal tech as well as smart technologies with civic and environmental application.
He was an undergraduate at University College London, earned a Masters with Distinction at the University of Oxford, and returned to UCL to write a doctoral thesis. He is Student Director of the Legal Translation Services and President of SmarTech Society at BPP London, and worked pro bono on BPP’s Enterprise Legal Advice Clinic.
