Ellis Hensen works as information manager/privacy officer at the faculty of Health and the faculty of Sports and Nutrition. She offers support to researchers in the field of privacy and security when personal data are processed. She believes that care, transparency and reliability are important; first and foremost to protect the privacy of the people involved in research projects, but also to uphold the good reputation of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Because of the type of job the AUAS trains young people for, she sees it as a great responsibility to set a clear and spotless example with regard to working with people and their, sometimes very sensitive, personal information.

Between 1996 and 2012 Ellis worked at the AUAS as an IT specialist and process manager. Since 2012 she has been information manager and as of 2018 the specialty "privacy" has been added.
