I became a Lecturer in Law at the School of Law in April 2018.
Previously, I have been a Research Fellow at the School of Law, Politics and Sociology of the University of Sussex, working on a British Academy funded project about money laundering in the UK real estate market. I also completed my PhD at the School of Law of the University of Leeds with a research project on in absentia proceedings in international criminal justice.
I hold a Law Degree cum laude and a Postgraduate Specialization Diploma in Law cum laude from the University of Bologna. I also hold an Advanced LL.M. in Public International Law (specialisation international criminal law) from Leiden University.
My research interests lie in international criminal law, international law, and criminal law. I am particularly interested in all aspects of international criminal justice, prosecution of international crimes before both international and national courts, transitional justice mechanisms, anti-money laundering legislation (especially with reference to the real estate market), the use of new technologies (e.g. cryptocurrencies) for money laundering purposes.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
