Lucia is a PhD candidate at the KU Leuven Institute for European Law. Her research is part of the ERC-project RESHUFFLE and looks at European fundamental rights in Dutch, Belgian and German courts. In her project, she analyses judgments on the European Arrest Warrant and Dublin Regulation to find out how national judges evaluate the human rights risks associated with transfers to other EU Member States. More broadly, Lucia has an interest in finding ways to improve fundamental rights realisation and protection within the European legal order, from the international to the local level.
Before starting her PhD, Lucia studied Public International Law and Legal Research at Utrecht University as well as Liberal Arts and Sciences at University College Maastricht.
