Research interests

Dr Georgiades's research to date has focused on two related areas. The first is intellectual property, privacy, and technology. The second looks at the legal issues that arise within the context of emerging digital technologies. Her work has investigated the legal protection of personal images that are uploaded and shared on social networks in Australia. In so doing, her research compared the way that international jurisdictions such as Europe, United States and the United Kingdom protect personal images and considered whether Australian law could be modified by incorporating a right to be forgotten and a right of publicity to protect personal images. Her work is interdisciplinary which spans technology, social media, and broad intellectual property law as well as data privacy with a strong focus on end users. It also examines the effectiveness of the current legal protections that exists to protect personal images that are misused by third parties within digital technologies. Her research considers the way that the law protects personal images of human beings from third party misuse within the digital world and considers solutions that potentially could fill in the gaps in the law. 

Her research interests include intellectual property law, data privacy and data protection, technology law, social media and communications law.
