Research

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.

Simultaneous participation in the pedagogical course, allowed me to apply newly gained knowledge in practice.

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning

In my teaching and learning activities, I have used both standard lecturing tools such as PowerPoint presentations as well as tools such as Kahoot. I used Kahoot for classroom quizzes as a learning and teaching activity, to stimulate discussion, analyze examples of application of studied theories or phenomena or to repeat and summarize studied material.

I have been using Live@Lund for communication with students, distribution of classroom material (lecture slides, seminar instructions and list of course literature), examination and other assignments.
