Charleen Fei

Charleen Fei is working on the topic of digital self-sovereign identity. She comes from an non-traditional tech background, having first studied law and receiving her LLM in 2012 for Intellectual Property Law from the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law in Munich. While working on data privacy issues and tech innovation from the legal perspective at Intel Mobile Communications GmbH, she discovered that she would see herself rather on the other side of the table, and transitioned to coding for change. Currently, she is a core developer for Jolocom GmbH, which is developing an open-source, blockchain-integrated self-sovereign digital identity solution.
