- Trust and Cooperation: My Ph.D. dissertation examined how institutions affected trust and cooperation among business actors in Italy and Germany. I've written articles and book chapters, and am currently writing a book on this.
- E-commerce: I've written two articles and several book chapters on the regulation of e-commerce, focusing on the regulation of privacy. I'm now beginning a broader project that widens the focus to state-private actor relationships in the governance of e-commerce.
- The European Union: I co-direct a project with Adrienne Héritier at the European University Institute on constitutional change and conflicts over competences between actors in the European Union.
- Institutional Theory: I've an interest in institutional theory, and especially in the relationship between rational choice, historical institutionalism, and sociological approaches.
