Leonie Maria Tanczer is Postdoctoral Research Associate at University College London’s (UCL) Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) and holds a PhD from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics (HAPP; previously: School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy) at Queen's University Belfast (QUB).

She is former Fellow at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) in Berlin. She studied Political Science (B.A.) at the University of Vienna and University of Limerick (Republic of Ireland) and Political Psychology (MSc.) at Queen's University Belfast.

At UCL, Tanczer is currently part of the PETRAS Internet of Things (IoT) Research Hub, working on issues such as the regulation and standardisation of IoT devices. She is also Principal Investigator for a research project which examines the implications of the IoT on victims of gender-based domestic violence and abuse. At QUB, her interdisciplinary PhD project included supervision from both social sciences and engineering (ECIT) and focused on the (in)securitisation of hacking and hacktivism.

Tanczer is researching and publishing on Internet-related topics and frequently presenting at academic conferences as well as speaking at public events. Her research interests include: Gender Studies, Cybersecurity, (Online) Collective Action and Internet Governance. She is also involved in teaching at the university level and has experience in providing academic skills support for students, having formerly been part of the the Learning Development Service (LDS) at QUB.

If she is not in the office, Tanczer is trying to attend as many of London’s Meetups, conferences and CryptoParties as possible, trawls through the Internet for new cat videos, or posts tech or feminist-related articles on Twitter. Oh, and she takes pride in her Erdős number, which is 5.
