  • Section: Public International Law/International Humanitarian Law/International Criminal Law


I recently obtained my LL.M./MAS from the Geneva Academy of international Humanitarian Law and Human Rights. During my studies I focused on all branches of international law applicable to armed conflict and other situations of violence, and in particular on international humanitarian and criminal law. I wrote my final LL.M. paper on the use of findings of commissions of inquiry and fact-finding missions in criminal prosecutions.

Just before coming to The Hague, during my internship at the Executive Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, I worked mainly in the area of international criminal justice, focusing in particular on investigations of commissions of inquiry, admissibility of evidence in criminal prosecutions, responsibilities of non-State armed groups and child slavery.

I also hold a BA and Master degree in international relations from University of Bologna in Italy. I wrote my master thesis on UN Special Rapporteurs on Human Rights and my BA thesis on the status of Jerusalem under international law.

My areas of interest are international humanitarian, human rights and criminal law, and specific topics include war crimes committed in the conduct of hostilities, investigations of commissions of inquiry and use of their findings in criminal proceedings.
