I hold an LL.M.
from the Harvard Law School (2014), where I was a Fulbright Scholar and
received the Dean’s Scholar Prize for academic excellence, an M.Jur. from the
University of Oxford (2012), and a five-year law degree from the University of
Perugia, Italy (2010). I am currently in the final stages of my DPhil at
I teach Tort law and Roman Law.
My research interests lie in private law, particularly tort law, and comparative law. My research explores the reasoning of different ‘legal actors’ (legislators, courts, and academics) in a variety of legal systems in relation to specific aspects and areas of private law.
