In my academic work my interest include European Union law, European and international tax law and comparative tax law. I specialise in issues of European VAT. In May 2016 I defended my doctoral thesis on VAT and insurance. The study provides a thorough legal analysis of the treatment of insurance in the harmonized system of European VAT as compared to the treatment of insurance in the New Zealand and Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST) systems. In 2017 was awarded the prestigious Maurice Lauré Prizeby International Fiscal Association for the work entitled “Insurance in European VAT: Current and Preferred Treatment in the Light of the New Zealand and Australian GST Systems”.  In 2017 I also received Oscar II scholarship from Lund University for the most prominent doctoral thesis at School of Economics and Management. 

My current research is centered on issues of advantages and challenges of tax collection, reporting and auditing based on new technologies. The research is financed by scholarship awarded by TOR/Skattenytt.

I actively participate in national and international tax law conferences and seminars and am an author of publications on issues of European VAT and European tax law.


I am involved in teaching and organisation of the Master Programme in European and International Tax Law.
