I received my PhD from the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona) and the University of Pavia (co-tutelle) in November 2013.
My research, conducted at both of these universities, and at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law and Maastricht University, between 2010 and 2013, addressed the role of national parliaments in the EU after the Lisbon Treaty. I focused on the British, French, German, Italian and Spanish cases and sought to highlight the changes brought about by the attribution of new prerogatives to national parliaments, especially their ability to control respect for the principle of subsidiarity.
I taught the subjects Sources of Spanish Law and Fundamental Rights and Freedom at undergraduate level from 2010 to 2014 at the Pompeu Fabra University, and was also in charge of classes on European Union Law at Birkbeck College, University of London in 2013-2014. This last experience matched my research interests, which include comparative constitutional law and the impact of the European integration process on member states and their parliaments more specifically. I am also particularly interested in the articulation of powers between regional, national and European levels. During my Max Weber Fellowship, I plan to look at the role of national parliaments in the current context of crisis, while also observing whether and how they continue to conduct their subsidiarity check.
