me at the public defence of my thesis

I am a researcher (chargé de recherche) in European, international and comparative labour law at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS)In this capacity I am affiliated to the research unit DRES (UMR 7354 Droit, religion, entreprise et société) at Strasbourg University.

My present research interests are:

  • Posting of workers and temporary labour mobility in the EU
  • The role of labour law in the context of the EU economic governance
  • The relationship between the EU legal order and international labour law


Before landing at the CNRS, I had three postdoctoral experiences, at Hasselt University (Belgium, supervisor Petra Foubert), University of Verona (Italy, supervisor Laura Calafà), and the  Excellence Chair on Pensions (Belgium, Université Catholique de Louvain, supervisor Alexia Autenne).

From 2014 to 2020 I also taught several courses, in both French and English, such as European and International Labour Law, Belgian Labour Law, Comparative industrial relations, and Advanced aspects of labour law. I currently teach advanced classes and seminars at the University of Strasbourg, mainly focusing on European, international and comparative labour law.

In 2014 I defended my Ph.D thesis on “Posting of workers and collective labour law in the EU“ at the Université Catholique de Louvain (supervisor Filip Dorssemont). Prior to the Ph.D, I received my Master in Law at the University of Pisa (October  2009) and at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna.

Yes, I am yet another Italian abroad.
