“My playing field for innovation and digitalisation”

“Being enrolled on two degree programmes has taught me to approach problems from an interdisciplinary perspective, to use unconventional methods and to think outside the box. I decided to study Physics because I was already fascinated by the world of physics when I was still at school. On the other hand, I wanted to enjoy an education that covers a wide range of subjects, so I also enrolled on the degree programme in Law. Here, I learned about the concepts of the state and law, but more importantly, I learned to think critically about society.

During my stay abroad at Santa Clara University in California (USA), I combined both studies for the first time and I specialised in areas at the intersection between physics and law: Internet law, technology law, patent law and the use of artificial intelligence for the protection of the environment.

Since 2017, I have been working as a teaching assistant at the Department of Innovation and Digitalisation in Law. This is a type of playing field for me, where I am strongly involved in interdisciplinary topics, such as data protection law, social media (apropos: Listen to my Ars Boni podcast episode in which I am talking to Nikolaus Forgó about the coronavirus and law in Kosovo), legal tech and digital teaching.

In March 2020, after the unexpected lock down of all universities, I set up the online platform “Survival Guide” together with my colleagues within 24 hours. The platform is addressed to teachers and provides helpful tips for remote teaching – in the form of texts, screencasts and videos taken by teachers. After a short time, we had more than 250 teachers participating. One month later, we shared the platform with other faculties at the University of Vienna and universities abroad. For the idea of ​​the “Survival Guide” I won the “European Women of Legal Tech Award 2020” in the Academia category – and that makes me very proud, of course.” – Doruntina Berisha

Human of #univie Tomas: When do things go quantum?

“We have all heard of the weirdness of quantum mechanics. Things that appear to be in multiple places simultaneously, others that are correlated over long distances, properties that manifest only when you measure them and particles behaving like waves… But why do we not see such things in our everyday lives? When do things “go … Continued
