I am currenty a Research Associate leading a project about “Democracy in Lockdown: What Role for the European Parliament in the COVID-19 Crisis?”. Last year, I was Jean Monnet Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies and I have been Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Bamberg since 2013 and Visiting Professor at the College of Europe since 2019. My research focuses on European integration, EU institutions and EU internal security policies. I hold a degree from Sciences Po Paris and the College of Europe in Bruges and obtained a PhD in Contemporary European Studies from the University of Sussex. I have previously worked at the Institute for European Integration Research in Vienna and the College of Europe.
