Nicolas Jupillat initially joined the Detroit Mercy School of Law in 2014 as its resident French Scholar. He currently holds dual appointments as Visiting Professor at the Law School and in the Computer and Information Systems Department. His main research interests lie in the legal and ethical challenges posed by technological development in the context of international security and armed conflicts. His current work focuses on the erosion of the right to privacy in the context of mass-scale foreign surveillance and international data transfers.
He occupied several research assistant positions, including as a recipient of the 2015 Google Policy Fellowship at CIPPIC, the University of Ottawa's Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic. In 2013, he produced a comprehensive study on the international law of cyber warfare for the French Defense Ministry's Strategic Affairs Directorate, and interned with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence, where he contributed to the early research efforts towards the update to the Tallinn Manual. More recently, he actively contributed to the forthcoming French translation of the Creative Commons copyright licenses 4.0 on behalf of CIPPIC in their role as Creative Commons Canada.
