This talk focuses on user-centric privacy solution by focusing on the data flow between people and organisations.

Nowadays we are living in a highly connected cyber-physical world, and we are increasingly depending on others, including organisations such as online service providers and other people, to live our lives and do businesses.

In this talk, the speaker will look at the user privacy protection problem from a data flows angle, and introduce his ongoing work on building a computational graph-based model to capture how data flow between people and organisations, in order to support research and development of more user-centric privacy solutions. The work is part of an EPSRC-funded project “PriVELT: PRIvacy-aware personal data management and Value Enhancement for Leisure Travellers” (
