Research interests

My current legal research interests include questions relating to public procument law, administrative law, state aid law and contract law. More precisely I'm interested in security of supply, potential of economic regulation in the promotion of sustainability, transparency in public procurement, effective remedies, promotion of public sector innovations as well as contract law rules in European law context.
