Arbeitsgebiete

Access to Justice, Legal Pluralism, Socio-Legal Studies, Comparative Constitutional Law, Law and Technology.

My PhD research is to study the politics of transnational legal indicators and their application to plural legal contexts. I am particularly interested in how these frameworks are constructed and the type of knowledge that they generate.
