Personal profile


My research focuses on the relationship between human rights, democracy and  transnational law, with a particular focus on EU law as well as the law of the ECHR. I am currently a Ragnar Söderberg Senior Research Fellow, as a principal investigator in a project investigating the fundamental rights of companies in European law. I am also Associate Senior Lecturer in Law and AI, looking into the role of companies in the governance of Artificial Intelligence.  

My doctoral thesis, which was defended in Lund in 2016 and has been published by Routledge under the title EU Law, Fundamental Rights and National Democracy, was awarded the René Cassin Thesis Prize 2017 by the International Institute for Human Rights.

I lecture extensively in EU Law and human rights law. I am the director for the courses Internal Market Law, Methodology and Argumentation and Enforcement of EU Law. In addition, I have been a Guest Lecturer at Gothenburg , Stockholm and Uppsala Universities, and a member of the ‘flying faculty’ of the China-EU Law School in Beijing.

Prior to joining academia, I worked in the Legal team of Liberty, the UK’s leading civil rights organization, and of Friends of the Earth, an environmental NGO. I have an LL.B from the University of Essex, an LL.M from Stockholm University and an LL.D from Lund University, and I am a (non-practicing) member of the Bar of England and Wales.
