I was awarded a scholarship from the Global Challenges Research Fund for my doctoral research. I am a Teaching Associate in Criminal Law and I was made Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) in 2019.
I obtained a Master’s Degree in Law in 2011 and a Master of Arts in Science of Public Administration in 2013, both from the Universities of Naples. I was awarded an LLM from the Geneva Academy in 2014, specialising in International Human Rights Law, International Criminal Law, International Humanitarian Law and International Refugee Law. Upon completion of my studies, I worked with the International Criminal Court (office of Judge Cuno Tarfusser), the Council of the EU (Legal Service, Justice and Home Affairs) and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, as well as with lawyers’ organisations (Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe and International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute).
I also have experience in domestic Criminal Law, as I completed my legal training in a law firm and I worked as judicial clerk at the Tribunal of Naples (criminal division).
