Carl Öhman is a doctoral candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. A member of the Digital Ethics Lab, he looks mainly at ethical and political challenges that arise from the growing volume of ‘digital human remains’ – data left by deceased users – on the internet. This includes questions of posthumous privacy, the right to access and control over the personal data of the deceased, and the relationship between information and time. Carl is also a frequently hired speaker and often participates in public debate.
