Current Research Interests

My research bridges disciplines, focusing on the intersections between Private International Law and various other legal disciplines, such as Maritime Law, Public International Law, International Commercial Arbitration and International Civil and Commercial Litigation. The common thread of my research is internationalisation, from a perspective that embraces diversity: legal, cultural and methodological diversity, and enables the development of legal knowledge that fosters better cross-border cooperation and understandings. In particular, my research develops ideas in which Private International Law can contribute to accommodate the richness of different legal traditions and cultures in cross-border cases.
