Anna Peycheva obtained her doctorate from Kent Law School, University of Kent, analysing the informal legislative influence of the European Central Bank in the overhaul of European economic and crisis governance in response to the sovereign debt crisis. Anna has been an Early Career Visiting Fellow at the University of Turin Law Department, where she developed a Marie Curie grant proposal focused on the institutional evolution of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). She has served in government as advisor on Economic and Monetary Union issues to the Bulgarian Minister of Finance in the Caretaker Government of Fall 2021. She has also worked in the Brussels think-tank sector, most recently as a Visiting Fellow with the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies in Brussels, where she published research on the treaty reform of the ESM.At the EUI Anna will embark on a research project set to explore the constitutional repercussions of the European Central Bank's Strategy Review under the supervision of Professor Deirdre Curtin. Wherever possible, Anna engages with her academic research through the lens of Critical Legal Studies, in the vein of Professor Christian Joerges, and is an avid proponent of the explanatory potential of Niklas Luhmann's Systems theory for the resolution of complex legal framework problems.
