Ever since she read the course description for Professor Kerr’s ‘Law of Robotics’ class at the University of Ottawa, Özlem has been hooked on Law and Technology. This growing interest is expressed in the recent research opportunities “Özzy” has been involved in, including: researching the concept of privacy default rules for Professor Kerr, comparing anti-spam legislation from around the world for privacy lawyer Shaun Brown, and updating practitioner Kris Klein’s book titled The Law of Privacy in Canada.
Alongside her passion for law, “Öz” also has a strong commitment to her Turkish-Canadian community and is a member of the Council of Turkish Canadians. Also, Özlem is absolutely obsessed with music, holding the self-proclaimed title of “Biggest Pink Floyd and Beyoncé Fan in the History of the Universe”. Finally, Özlem’s life motto is “All You Need Is Love”, signifying that she always puts family, friends and that special person before anything else.
