Personal details

First State Examination in Law (Freiburg i. Brsg.), LLM (Virginia), Ass jur (Düsseldorf), PhD (Kent), PGCHE (Kent)

I studied piano at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève before going into law full-time.  I gained my undergraduate law degree from the University of Freiburg in Germany and subsequently worked as a research and teaching fellow at the University of Jena Department of Law.  I attended the LLM programme at the University of Virginia School of Law on a Fulbright scholarship.  I did my professional legal training in Germany and I am a fully qualified lawyer.  I gained my PhD in the area of EU antitrust law from Kent Law School, where I worked as an associate lecturer between 2009 and 2012.  I joined the University of Leicester and took up my current position at Leicester Law School in May 2012.  My main research interests lie in the areas of EU and US antitrust law.  In 2015, I was a visiting fellow at the European University Institute Department of Law, Florence, where I researched and wrote a monograph on the role of economic theory in EU antitrust law.  This project was funded by a BA/Leverhulme small research grant.
