Biography

I am a doctoral researcher in law at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence and a research assistant with the Global Citizenship Observatory at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies.

My interests lie broadly in the fields of comparative public law, public international law, and legal and political theory. I am particularly interested in how the law responds (and fails to respond) to cultural diversity and ethnic conflict. My doctoral research focuses on linguistic justice and immigration in Europe.

In the course of my doctoral studies, I have been a visiting researcher at King’s College London and the University of Edinburgh, and have taught legal theory at Edinburgh School of Law. I have also acted as a consultant to the Council of Europe’s anti-racism human rights monitoring body, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance.  I sit on the executive board of the European Journal of Legal Studies and am a former coordinator of the EUI’s Constitutionalism and Politics Working Group.

Before coming to the EUI, I was a trainee at the Council of Europe, an intern at the European Centre for Minority Issues, and a research assistant at the Europa-Universität Flensburg. I received my B.A. and M.Phil. from the University of Bristol and my LL.M. from the EUI.
