I obtained my doctorate at the University of Szeged and later worked as a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Freiburg and at the law faculties of the Universities of Vienna and Utrecht. I joined the MCC in 2022. My main research interests are comparative criminal law, EU criminal law and juvenile justice. I have taught and continue to teach these subjects at several universities in Europe. In recent years, my academic work has focused on EU criminal law integration and judicial cooperation in criminal matters. My studies have appeared in prestigious journals such as the Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies and the Zeitschrift für die gesamte Strafrechtswissenschaft. I am co-editor of the journal 'eucrim' and co-author, with Professor John Spencer, of the chapter on EU criminal law in the Oxford University Press textbook 'European Union Law' (Barnard and Peers 2020). My research has been supported by prestigious institutions such as the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the DAAD, the OeAD and the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. I have been invited as a visiting researcher at the University of Cambridge Law School on several occasions.
