I am a J.S.D. Candidate at the Yale Law School, an Assistant Professor at Charles University, Faculty of Law in Prague and a Visiting Fellow at the Robert Schuman Center for Advanced Studies at the European University Institute in Florence.

My research interest includes constitutional and democratic theory, European Union law, comparative constitutional law, European Union decision-making processes, and judicialization of governance. I have also been involved in European private law projects ranging from torts to antitrust matters.

In my dissertation, I examined the way interactions among constitutional courts in the European Union shaped the content of the common European constitution and how such practices gain normativity as well as democratic legitimacy. Special attention was paid to the impact of the Eastern Enlargement of the EU and the role of new Member States’ courts in the common enterprise.
