Bio

I am a PhD candidate at Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC). I hold my LL.M. in International Business Law from Central European University in Budapest. Prior to joining TILEC, I was a junior associate at Baker McKenzie’s International Trade Department in Kyiv specializing in cross-border trade, trade financing, export controls and sanctions regimes.

My current research focuses on international trade and investment regulation, particularly on the challenges posed to the international legal order by the adoption of trade-restrictive measures. More specifically, I analyse whether and to which extent international law should limit the discretion of the states to implement and enforce economic sanctions on the grounds of national security.

My supervisors are Prof. Dr. Panos Delimatsis and Dr. Enrico Partiti (both at TILEC), and Prof. Dr. Joel P. Trachtman (the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, the US).
