Tatiana Tropina has been a Senior Researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law since December 2010. Her research is centered around international cybercrime and cybersecurity and many of its aspects, including: international standards to combat it, analyses of existing legislation, trends in public-private partnerships to address cybersecurity issues, how it relates to human rights, and the multi-stakeholder approach to fight cybercrime.
She has been conducting cybercrime research since 2002; in 2005, she became the first Russian researcher to defend a PhD thesis on cybercrime. From 2002 to 2009, she was responsible for cybercrime projects at the regional subdivision of the Transnational Crime and Corruption Centre (George Mason University, USA) in Vladivostok, Russia. She worked full-time as a lawyer and then as head of the legal departments of a number of telecommunication companies from 2003 to 2008.
This experience has led to her offering her expertise at the international level to a variety of other projects, including conducting a cybercrime study for the Global Symposium of Regulators (ITU, 2010) as well as serving as a consultant to the UNODC Comprehensive Cybercrime Study (2012-2013) and to the World Bank's World Development Report 2016 (2015).
