"I welcome PhD proposals that deal with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice, and all matters judicial law making. I will be particularly happy to supervise students that are willing to develop novel research methodologies to gauge legal change or are up to the challenge of applying existing legal empirical methods. I give priority to proposals, which focus on judicial responses to broader developments (and current issues) in the European Union. For more information in this regard please see current courses and teaching activities.
As a supervisor I am easily approachable and considerate. I value straightforward communication and constructive criticism. From my supervisees I expect commitment to their project, clear focus on their goals, and the ability to work independently"
