About me

I am currently an Emile Noël Global Fellow at NYU School of Law and a senior researcher at Professor Tietje’s Chair for Public Law, European Law and International Economic Law at the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg.

I also work on my research project “Non-judicial rights review. The Promise and Limits of Rights Review by Public Non-Judicial Institutions in Germany, the EU and the UN” within the framework of the “Temporary Positions for Principal Investigators”-programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG).
