Supervision interests

"I welcome research proposals on all aspects of European governance and European institutions, in particular in relation to their accountability and transparency. In addition issues relating to the protection of fundamental rights in Europe and beyond, in particular privacy and data protection, are part of my current research interests. I encourage researchers to address their topic from theoretical, empirical and interdisciplinary perspectives”
