Bio

I am an Assistant Professor of Human Rights Law at the Department of Public Law and Governance. Prior to joining Tilburg Law School, I was an LSE postdoctoral fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Business Ethics at the University of St. Gallen (the holder of a Basic Research Fund). I was also a consultant for the British Academy Future of the Corporation Programme. I studied law at the University of Milan, Harvard Law School (LLM) and Maastricht Law School (PhD). During my PhD, I was a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg and a visiting research fellow at the Max Planck Institute Heidelberg and the University of Tel Aviv Global Trust Project. 

Expertise

My research focuses on human rights law across different fields. This includes business and human rights; environment and human rights; extraterritoriality and transnationality; the impact of human rights on private law litigation and corporate law. 

Teaching

Teaching is my great passion. I believe the learning process uniquely connects students and teacher as well as students in between in each other. My teaching experience includes international law, human rights, business and human rights and company law. Prior to joining Tilburg Law School, I had the pleasure to teach at the London School of Economics, the University of St. Gallen, SciencesPo Paris (Campus Nancy), and Luiss University. If you are interested in joining one of my classes, please do not hesitate to contact me.
