My research primarily concerns practices of international courts and the role of the international judiciary in the development of international jurisprudence and specific domains of law. I research the development of legislation and public policies concerning equality broadly, economic inequality and anti-discrimination. I base my research primarily on empirical methodologies and approaches, which combine quantitative methods, such as big data and network analysis, with qualitative legal analysis.
In my current research I am broadly interested in
- Practices and roles of international courts and organizations
- Equality and anti-discrimination law
- Economic inequality and welfare in international legal context
- Empirical legal studies
In my Ph.D. thesis, I examined how the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court evolves through application of the courts’ own precedents in their judicial decision-making.
Ph.d. thesis: ‘Dynamics of decision-making and jurisprudence in the domain of discrimination law at the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union’..
I am currently affiliated with the project ‘From Dogma two Data – Exploring how case law evolves’ by iCourts.
In the Spring of 2017, I teach EU law and have previously taught jurisprudence and sociology of law in the course ‘Law, morality and politics’.
