Leanne Wiseman is a Professor in Law at Griffith University, Brisbane Australia and is Associate Director of Australian Centre for Intellectual Property in Agriculture (ACIPA). Leanne is an an interdisciplinary scholar whose research lies at the intersections of law, science and digital technologies. Her research expertise focuses on the intersection between law and new technologies, with particular attention to the intersection of law with big data, digital technologies and agriculture. She has most recently focused on the legal dimensions of the digitisation of agriculture and has explored the legal consequences of the adoption and uptake of digital technologies in agricultural industries in national and international contexts. Leanne was the lead Legal researcher on a large Australian Commonwealth Government funded research grant: Accelerating Precision Agriculture to Decision Agriculture, 2016-2018. The collaborative project's aim was to design a solution for the use of big data in agriculture, while increasing the profitability of producers, providing clarity about data ownership and access rights, and improving digital strategies and governance within Australian agriculture. This work is shaping international responses to the legal consequences of digital technologies in agriculture. From this research, Leanne is currently investigating the role that intellectual property law can play in responding to the emerging International Right to Repair movement.
