Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the law of European Union's Foreign Policy and diplomacy.

This includes a legal and institutional assessment of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) of the EU, the role of the Court of Justice, and judicial protection in CFSP.

The research is based not only on legal sources, but takes into account the historical development of the EU, as well as international relations literature. 

My academic interests extend to International Law, International Relations, Political Theory and European History.
