Areas of Expertise:
International, EU, and national public law; Legal Philosophy; the Protection of Cultural Heritage; Law and Interdisciplinarity
I am based at Universität der Bundeswehr München as an Acting Professor for National and International Public Law with a Focus on the Protection of Cultural Heritage. I am also co-directing a research project at the Law Faculty of the University of Salzburg, where we aim at establishing the European Constitutional Court Network.
My research interests are quite broad. I am, for instance, interested in the interplay between legal orders concentrating on questions of international, EU, and national public law, as well as legal philosophy. A particular focus of my current agenda lies in the protection of cultural heritage as well as law and interdisciplinarity. This determines my goals for my AGYA membership.
My main motivation to become an AGYA member was to learn as much as possible from the fellow AGYA members. I would also like to work on a comparative law project on cultural heritage protection in the MENA region with a strong interdisciplinary perspective.
