Research interests

Niloufer analyses how technological change undermines the effectiveness of law, especially in the fields of intellectual property, telecommunications and media, and how legal frameworks can be designed to support longevity. Additionally, her work examines the operation of cyber crime laws and considers legal means of protecting internet privacy. Niloufer's research on face recognition technology was published in the International Journal of Law and Information Technology (Oxford University Press) and a collaborative contribution to intellectual property law in China is forthcoming in The China Quarterly (Cambridge University Press). She has recently been a member of the Australian Group submitting to the AIPPI World Congress on copyright law and has been involved in a collaborative research project on telecommunications law with Qatar University funded by the Qatar National Research Foundation. Niloufer contributes to the Optus Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub and is an industry participant in CSIRO Future's development of an Australian Cyber Security Road Map.
