I became a lecturer in Commercial Corporate and Banking law in October 2021.
Previously, I have been a Lecturer in law at the University of Huddersfield. Before that, I was a research fellow at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, working on a project funded by the European Commission. The project focused on insolvency cross-border cooperation with transnational protocols and led to the development of the European Model Protocol.
I hold a PhD from the University of Leeds, an LLM in International Economic and Business law from the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) and a degree in law from the University of Udine.
My research interests lie primarily in insolvency law with a comparative approach and generally in cross-border scenarios.
So far, my research has focused on a proposal for the harmonisation of transaction avoidance in the European Union and on the development of a European Model protocol that allows insolvency practitioners to cooperate efficiently in cross-border insolvency proceedings.
I am currently researching farmer insolvency in the European Union and the relationship between national limitations posed on farmers insolvency and the European Directive on restructuring and insolvency.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
