Robert Riemann

Hi, I’m Robert Riemann and this is my personal blog.

I’m physicist and computer scientist by education and work currently in Brussels on data protection policy. Here, I write mostly about my travels and digitalisation.

During my studies, I became knowledgeable and passionate about open source and free software, cryptography, data protection, big data analysis, modern web development (Fullstack), and peer-to-peer technology such as BitTorrent or Blockchain/Bitcoin.

After my PhD studies, I joined the IT Policy team of the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS). Check out my résumé for more information.

In my spare time, I like to go dancing Swing, to sing in a choir and play guitar. I spend a considerable amount of time to learn more about free software and improve free software. I am a fan of Couchsurfing and of a united Europe.
