I am a Research Associate at the Global Citizenship Observatory, based at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence. I also teach at the EUI’s School of Transnational Governance.
My research and teaching interests lie broadly in the fields of constitutional and international law and legal and political theory, with a particular focus on human rights, minority rights, immigration, and citizenship. My work has been published or is forthcoming in Public Law, the International Journal of Minority and Group Rights, and the Journal of Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Law. I have also written for Verfassungsblog and for the blogs of the Oxford Human Rights Hub, the European Consortium for Political Research, and the Global Citizenship Observatory.
I received my BA and MPhil from the University of Bristol and my LLM and PhD in Law from the EUI. During my doctoral studies, I was Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Legal Studies and coordinator of the EUI’s Constitutionalism and Politics Working Group. I also held visiting positions at King’s College London, the University of Edinburgh, and the WZB Berlin Social Science Centre.
Outside the academic world, I have worked at the European Centre for Minority Issues and the Council of Europe, including as a consultant for the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance.
