Full CV and Publications
In my view, judicial dialogue represents a privileged perspective for studying the relations among interacting legal orders, particularly in the multilevel and pluralistic structure of the European constitutional legal order. Starting from this assumption, I focused my studies on judicial dialogue as a way for constitutionalizing the European Union.
Within the framework of the Max Weber Programme, I plan to explore the differences and similarities in the application of European Court of Human Rights and EU laws by national courts.
I completed my Ph.D. at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Pisa) with a thesis on the impact of European Welfare on the relationship between the EU's centre and its periphery. In Pisa I have also conducted postdoctoral research over two years, serving as STALS Senior Assistant Editor (www.stals.sssup.it) and teaching EU law and European Constitutional Law.
Previously, as an Adjunct Professor (professore a contratto) at the University of Pisa, I taught seminars in EU Law, International Law on Development Cooperation, and European and Comparative Constitutional Law. I have also held the position of visiting researcher at the University of Barcelona, Université de Montréal, University of Geneva, King’s College, London, and the Tilburg Institute of Comparative and Transnational Law (TICOM), where I was also invited to take part in conferences and hold several seminars.
I am also TICOM Invited Fellow, in Tilburg, and Researcher on specific projects at the Centre for Studies on Federalism in Turin.
