Summary

Since October 2017, Isabella has been a PhD candidate at The City Law School (City, University of London) and an early-stage researcher under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on EU Trade and Investment Policy (EUTIP), supervised by Prof. Elaine Fahey and Dr. Tawhida Ahmed. Her project asks: “In the new generation of EU 'deep' trade agreements with other developed economies, how should we explore and understand the 'deepness' of fundamental rights ?” The focus is on two sets of rights, namely labour rights and data protection rights; and on the latest so-called ‘deep’ trade initiatives between the EU and other developed economies in North America (Canada and the US) and Asia (Singapore and Japan).

Isabella holds a B.A. in European Studies and an LL.M. in International Trade and Investment Law from Maastricht University.
