- Section: Law of the European Union
I completed my studies in Law at the University of Valencia (Spain). At the University of Ghent (Belgium), I followed courses on European and International Law, and afterwards I attended the Hague Academy of International Law. I’ve built my career in several and diverse international work environments: I worked at a Spanish-German Law firm in Spain; conducted legal research at the Hague Conference on Private International Law on intercountry adoptions and surrogacy; carried out in-depth analysis of human rights at the United Nations Office in Geneva examining national laws and analysing their level of compliance with treaty obligations; and I completed a traineeship at Europol carrying out investigations in the area of Fundamental Rights in the fight against organised crime. I sincerely enjoy conducting legal analysis, and to this end I am currently contributing to carrying out research for the T.M.C Asser Institute in the European Law Cluster. My main project involves examining the legislation framework in the EU environmental acquis, in particular the monitoring and reporting provisions in existing European Directives and Regulations, in order to analyse the level of compliance assurance in the European Union.
I am fluent in English, as a result of having studied and worked in English. Additionally, I speak Spanish, German and Italian fluently. I grew up in Spain and was educated there, and I speak German and Italian with my family. Furthermore, I have a good command of French.
